2017 has seen a record-setting number of lawsuits being filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reflecting the EEOC moving forward with its aggressive agenda. The suits reflect the EEOC’s position on many issues, including:

  • Racial and sexual harassment

  • Accommodation issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act

  • Religious Discrimination

  • Retaliation claims

  • Pay discrimination issues

The EEOC’s fiscal year runs from October 1 to September 30. At the end of its 2017 fiscal year, the agency rushed to file suits against companies for the above issues. In a matter of days, the agency filed a whopping 28 lawsuits. If employers believed that a Republican administration meant less agency action, the suits clearly indicate that this is not the case.

This webinar with expert Susan Desmond will provide information regarding the agency’s strategic agenda for the next fiscal year and will discuss the numerous lawsuits to give insight as to the EEOC’s position on many important issues including, but not limited to, accommodations for the pregnant worker; providing leaves of absences as an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act; when an employer can refuse to hire individuals due to drug use; and religious accommodation issues.

Session Highlights:

  • An employer’s obligations to pregnant workers, including, providing light duty and other accommodations.

  • An employer’s obligations to recovering drug addicts

  • An employer’s accommodation obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, including, leaves of absences, light duty requests

  • An employer’s obligations to address sex and racial harassment under Title VII, including when the alleged harassment comes from outsiders such as customers

  • Handling psychiatric illnesses under the Americans with Disabilities Act

  • Enforcement of dress codes that conflict with religious beliefs

Why You Should Attend:

The webinar will provide guidance on the EEOC’s current strategic agenda and the same for 2018 as reflected in its guidance and these cases. We will also discuss some court decisions that reflect a reluctance to accept the EEOC’s agenda completely – setting the stage for extensive appellate court litigation.

  • Company's General Manager

  • Vice President of Operations

  • CFOs

  • Regional Operations Directors

  • Plant Managers/Assistant Managers
