The House of Representatives just issued a budget report which criticized the EEOC for commencing lawsuits before engaging in meaningful efforts to conciliate.
But as Law360 reports, “[d]espite allegations that the agency has a habit firing off lawsuits, the EEOC has filed significantly fewer suits in recent years, according to statistics from its website. While the agency filed 421 suits in 2004, that number has steadily decreased to 148 suits in 2013, according to the EEOC.”
Wonder if there could be – nah – a political agenda here?
In any event, we will discuss the EEOC and its role in my free HR.com webinar on May 15th at 1:30 pm (EST).
