Responding to EEOC and State Agency Charges in Illinois (Webinar)
Employment discrimination litigation is evolving and complex. On October 17, 2016 the EEOC announced its 2017 Strategic Enforcement Plan (“SEP”), building off the prior 2012 SEP. Even employers too small to be subject to federal scrutiny must be aware of these priorities as state and local agencies often follow the EEOC’s lead.
In this lively 75 minute webinar, join attorney Noah A. Frank of SmithAmundsen to learn about what issues are hot before the agencies, how compliance can keep your company safe, evaluating potential claims, and successfully navigating claims.
