We just posted an Alert! that the EEOC’s big press release (and wide press coverage) stating that is had settled the case of the Hawaiian farm workers was a tad premature — the consent decree was denied by the Court because the EEOC failed to follow proper procedure. And the Court even threatened sanctions!
Carol Dawson, President at EEO GUIDANCE, Inc., Louisville, KY area, had this to say:
“Too bad the settlement is currently derailed because the EEOC officials decided they could side-step the court orders.
After spending years on the federal side of government, I know there are federal officials who believe they are above following instructions/directives by the court (or pretty much anyone). Never smart … I hope the EEOC can get this back on track quickly.”
