An EEOC Audit May Be Coming Soon: Are You Prepared?

April 12

Nearly every business will, at one time or another, receive an EEOC charge of discrimination - are you prepared for an audit?

Today the EEOC is employing new and more aggressive tactics to uncover situations of broad-scale, group discrimination. While a charge of discrimination may be commonplace, an EEOC request for additional data, subpoena, or request for an onsite investigation will likely catch even the most experienced HR professionals off-guard. This material will help business owners, HR professionals, and in-house attorneys understand the EEOC's primary objectives in seeking additional data and conducting full audits. Learn key techniques for responding to the EEOC's various requests that will significantly reduce the risk of continued EEOC attention. Moreover, in the event the EEOC comes onsite to conduct an investigation, this information will provide key insights into how to prepare for the onsite, what to expect when the EEOC is in the building, and how to respectfully assert your rights during the process. During this unprecedented time of aggressive EEOC enforcement, this information is critical for employers so they can protect their interests during an EEOC audit.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to explain the various types of discrimination the EEOC is seeking to redress and how to draft your Position Statement to minimize the risk of a full EEOC audit.

- You will be able to identify the reasons why the EEOC might seek additional information and understand the risks associated with types of information the EEOC is seeking.

- You will be able to describe the EEOC's onsite investigation protocols and advise your organization how to prepare and handle an onsite investigation.

- You will be able to discuss the EEOC's process for analyzing the data and information received during the onsite and understand the options for resolution thereafter.
