Webinar – Retaliation Update
EEOC’s New Guidance and Key Employer Takeaways
Almost half of the complaints filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) contain retaliation allegations and that number has continued to increase over the past several years. In many instances, it is not the underlying claim of discrimination that results in an employer’s liability, but the retaliation claim. These retaliation claims are preventable with appropriate policies, guidelines, and training of managers and supervisors.
