Title:

New EEOC Retaliation Enforcement Guidance: Best Practices For Avoiding Your #1 Employee Charge Risk

SKU:WC-1020350
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webcast
Description:

In January 2016, the EEOC released proposed guidance to overhaul its regulatory interpretation of the standards for proving retaliation under the various civil rights laws including Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act, and the Equal Pay Act.

According to many employment attorneys, the EEOC’s new guidance will make it harder for employers to defend retaliation claims. This is especially concerning because the threat of being sued for retaliation is enormous: according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), in 2014 retaliation claims made up 48.4% of all charges filed under federal civil rights statutes.

Even more challenging, winning a retaliation claim is particularly difficult for the employer because the employee doesn’t have to show the validity or their underlying discrimination or harassment claim.

A public comment period about the proposed guidance is currently underway, so now is the time to find out what the EEOC’s position on retaliation could mean for how you train the workforce to minimize the risk of retaliation.

Join us for insights into the best practices the EEOC proposes employers should follow to help avoid retaliation claims, as well as its recommendations on employee and supervisor training.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
