    EEOC 101 – EEOC Processes and Procedures from an EEOC Representative

     Moderator: Carmen Lainez

    There are times, despite your best efforts to create a positive work environment, when employees have unresolved employment issues. In some cases, they will go to the US Government, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and file a charge. SHRM’s Body of Applied skills and Knowledge (BASK) has a functional area entitled, “U.S. Employment Law & Regulations” which refers to the knowledge and application of all relevant laws and regulations in the United States. BASK calls for, in part, an HR proficiency of maintaining a current working knowledge of relevant domestic and global employment laws.

    As an opportunity to develop this proficiency, this session will help you understand the EEOC process including:

    • Navigating and responding to an EEOC charge;
    • The best practices for mediation;
    • Conflict resolutions suggestions;
    • The reporting and training requirements.

    This informational session will also be an opportunity for you to ask questions and clarify issues.
