Change is the only constant: Understanding EEOC Initiatives and Responding Effectively

August 29, 2013 at 11:00am12:00pm

Companies face more rules (and headaches) concerning the employer/employee relationship than in years past. With the EEOC, employers often wonder if their changing rules provide more controversy than clarity — and are concerned about the impact these guidelines will have on their workplace environments.

Join Dinsmore attorney Kathy Quesenberry as she breaks down the latest EEOC initiatives and offers practical strategies to help avoid costly litigation and claimant awards.

In this complimentary 60-minute webinar, Kathy will discuss:

  • The latest recruitment and hiring guidelines, including consideration of criminal records/convictions and out-of-work status 
  • EEOC initiatives to protect immigrant, migrant, LGBT and other “vulnerable” workers 
  • Americans with Disabilities Act and required reasonable accommodations 
  • Handling retaliation claims on behalf of individuals who have filed EEOC administrative charges or lawsuits 
  • New strategies and best practices for responding to agency investigations
