EEOC to Prioritize ‘Robust’ Compliance Assistance

According to a recent announcement, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) seeks to improve its compliance assistance this year. Janet Dhillon, the EEOC’s new chair, said that to prevent discrimination in the workplace, the EEOC will conduct outreach to employers, especially the small business community; continue to build strong partnerships with employer and advocacy groups; and update some guidance documents and rescind others, such as those that exceed the EEOC’s statutory authority. 2/12/2020
