Equal Employment Opportunity Law

Printer-friendly version
Location:EANJ Training Room
Sponsored by:EANJ

Over the past decade, over 825,000 charges of job discrimination have been filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the majority alleging  discrimination based on race, but many for sex, age, disability and national origin discrimination.  One in four employers a year is a target for such a charge.  This unique session will not only review and evaluate relevant case law under federal and state discrimination statutes but will also present an in-depth look into a discrimination charge, with an emphasis on preserving evidence and preparing a defense.  The session will also explore the best practices and policies that have been proven to reduce the threat of discrimination charges.

Key Topics

  • Overview of Federal and State Discrimination Statutes
  • Burdens of Proof
  • Attorney—Client Privilege 
  • Document Retention and Preservation of Evidence
  • Preparing a Defense
  • Responding to the EEOC Charge
  • Retaliation
