The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was very active in 2016, taking many purposeful actions directed specifically at harassment and retaliation, from spearheading task forces, to engaging in special initiatives, revising Enforcement Guidelines, and changing long standing practices and procedures. This seminar will explore the impact those actions, as well as the new administration, new leadership at the EEOC, and recent cases, will have on how you conduct / manage investigations.
