Includes Key Federal Sector Decisions, Special Article on Harassment in the Workplace
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) today announced the latest edition of its federal sector Digest of Equal Employment Opportunity Law (EEO Digest), which is available on the EEOC's website.
"The special article on harassment in this issue recommends ways to prevent workplace harassment and is an excellent resource for stakeholders," said Carlton M. Hadden, director of the EEOC's Office of Federal Operations (OFO).
The EEO Digest, a quarterly publication prepared by OFO, features a wide variety of recent Commission decisions and federal court cases of interest. The Digest also includes hyperlinks so that stakeholders can easily access the full decisions which have been summarized. This edition of the Digest contains summaries of noteworthy decisions issued by EEOC, including cases involving: Attorneys' Fees, Class Complaints, Compensatory Damages, Complaint Processing, Dismissals, Findings on the Merits, Mixed Motive, Remedies, Sanctions, Settlement Agreements, Stating a Claim, Summary Judgment, and Timeliness.
The summaries are neither intended to be exhaustive or definitive as to the selected subject matter, nor are they to be given the legal weight of case law in citations. In addition to the quarterly Digest, Commission federal sector decisions are available on EEOC's website.
The public may also receive federal sector information updates and news items via GovDelivery and Twitter. EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination in the public and private sectors. Further information about EEOC is available online at www.eeoc.gov.
