Cleveland, Ohio (Jan. 18, 2019) – Fisher Phillips today announced that Lauren Tompkins has joined its Cleveland office as an associate.
The EEOC recently announced a partnership with the DOJ that will allow for quicker action on harassment allegation against state and local government employers. In an interview with Law360, Kansas City partner Randy Coffey said the most pronounced impact of the agencies' cooperation agreement will likely be seen in extreme cases, such as when an employer is accused of not doing anything to protect workers from sexual assault or those where the EEOC believes a state or local government is interfering with an investigation, like when an employee is fired while an investigation into their allegation is pending.
