The EEOC's Evolving Enforcement Agenda: What to Expect in 2015 and Beyond
Darin MacKender’s article “The EEOC’s Evolving Enforcement Agenda: What to Expect in 2015 and Beyond” was featured in Law Week Colorado on May 25, 2015.
In the article, Darin provides employees with a range of commonsense steps they can take to ensure that they don’t draw the agency’s attention. These proactive steps include:
- Making sure employment policies are up to date and fully compliant with the law
- Conducting annual handbook reviews for changes in the law
- Regularly training employees and management on discrimination and harassment policies
- Ensuring that there are open lines of communication and effective reporting procedures
- Conducting self-audits
- Fostering a culture of respect, ethics and professionalism.
If confronted with a charge of discrimination from an employee, Darin advises employers to contact employment counsel immediately for assistance in navigating this evolving landscape.
