Why Should You Attend
The EEOC processes nearly 85,000 claims each year. Between the #MeToo movement, the free filing system of the EEOC, and social media’s interest in reporting allegations of wrongdoing (right or wrong), any employer with more than fifteen employees runs a huge risk of dealing with the EEOC at some point.
When faced with the EEOC, it is imperative that employers understand their rights and obligations, the process used by the EEOC, and the best practices for surviving an EEOC investigation. If done correctly, the likelihood of an EEOC investigation becoming a lawsuit is very low, but if done wrong, then you have a very expensive and stressful legal battle ahead of you. This program will explain the good, the bad and the ugly of the EEOC, demystify the investigative process, and a toolbox of best practices for coming out as unscathed as possible from your EEOC investigation.
