Labor: The EEOC tackles discrimination

The agency’s draft strategic plan includes immediate implications for employers

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC’s) recent release of its draft four-year strategic plan gives interested parties a vision of how the agency plans to position itself long term. However, it also gives some insight on immediate implications for employers about the EEOC’s efforts to generate the underlying charges of discrimination. 

The draft strategic plan, which is open for comment until Feb. 1, “establishes a framework for achieving the EEOC’s mission ‘to stop and remedy unlawful employment discrimination,’ so that the nation might soon realize the Commission’s vision of ‘justice and equality in the workplace.’”
