In a recent case, the U.S. Supreme Court authorized judicial review of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC’s) pre-suit conciliation efforts to evaluate whether the EEOC met the requirements set forth in Title VII. If a court determines that the EEOC failed to fulfill its statutory conciliation obligation, potential remedies might range from an order to conciliate, award of attorneys’ fees, or dismissal of the action. However, given the very limited scope of the review, the EEOC still has wide latitude and discretion over the conciliation process. Thus, it is crucial for employers to closely monitor the EEOC's actions and understand its obligations to strategically plan and weigh possible litigation risks.
In this two-hour Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of EEOC Conciliation Efforts as well as the Truth & Consequences of its Reviewability. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective risk mitigation strategies while ensuring compliance with discrimination laws.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
- EEOC’s Conciliation Efforts: An Overview
- Pre-Lawsuit Obligations Under Title VII
- Implications of EEOC’s Reviewability of Pre-suit Efforts
- Key Issues and Challenges
- Recent Court Decisions
- Best Practices for Employers
