Effective EEOC Position Statements on a Time and Money Budget

$189.00

On February 22, 2016, the EEOC announced a major shift in its “handling” of employers’ Position Statements.  Because of this shift, employers must become even MORE selective and stingy about information voluntarily provided to the EEOC in Position Statements and supporting documents. Accordingly, short story-based Position Statements based around common defense themes will WORK BETTER than long, attorney-prepared tomes, especially (a) to avoid sharing the “playbook” before litigation; and (b) to save money on attorneys’ fees. This program will acquaint participants with the EEOC’s PCHP, address recurrent defense themes, and provide a template for drafting effective EEOC position statements.

Product Description

On February 22, 2016, the EEOC announced a major shift in its “handling” of employers’ Position Statements: the EEOC will provide Charging Parties full access to employers’ evidence, while withholding everything but the “minimally sufficient” charge from employers. Because of EEOC budgetary restrictions and its Priority Charge Handling Procedures (PCHP), this shift will have virtually no impact on EEOC charge “handling.” But this lopsided flow of information could have a deleterious and decisive impact on the subsequent private litigation. After all, over 99% of equal employment opportunity disputes play out as private litigation, not EEOC enforcement.

Because of this shift, employers must become even MORE selective and stingy about information voluntarily provided to the EEOC in Position Statements and supporting documents. Accordingly, short story-based Position Statements based around common defense themes will WORK BETTER than long, attorney-prepared tomes, especially (a) to avoid sharing the “playbook” before litigation; and (b) to save money on attorneys’ fees. This program will acquaint participants with the EEOC’s PCHP, address recurrent defense themes, and provide a template for drafting effective EEOC position statements.
