Description:

This webinar will equip employment counsel with the practical techniques needed to draft EEOC position statements. Hear from experienced panelists as they discuss strategic techniques to respond to various types of charges while minimizing full-scale investigations and lawsuits.

Course Description

The EEOC has implemented its systemic discrimination initiative targeting discrimination in hiring, promotion, pay, disability issues, etc. Many of the resulting full-scale investigations or lawsuits stem directly from an employer's response to an EEOC charge. Employers often believe they are equipped to draft position statements without advice of counsel, especially if the challenged action is based on a blanket policy enforced against all employees. This costly mistake often provides the basis for a disparate impact claim.

Practitioners must ensure employers know that they need to bring in counsel from the very outset of any adverse employment action. Employers' counsel must craft a complete, concise and effective position statement based on a thorough and documented internal investigation. Counsel must guide employers with thoughtful and strategic consideration to mitigate further investigations and lawsuits.

Listen as our distinguished panel discusses effective attorney involvement in the internal investigation which serves as the basis for the position statement. The panelists will then review position statement drafting techniques based upon the initial charge. Finally, the panelists will review best practices for policies and procedures.

AGENDA

  • Internal investigation
  • Position statement drafting techniques
  • Class claims vs. individual claims
  • Failure to hire claims
  • Equal pay claims
  • Policy and procedure best practices

Benefits

The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What techniques should be implemented when conducting an internal investigation with the position statement in mind?
  • Depending on the basis of the charge, what techniques should be used when drafting the position statement?
  • What are the best practices for crafting the company's employment policies and procedures?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
