Telling Your Story: Keys to an Effective EEOC Position Statement

Get the tools needed to write an effective EEOC position statement.

Many employers have limited experience dealing with the EEOC and charges of discrimination. Often an employer will receive a charge and want to simply respond that it is untrue and they did not discriminate. However, an employer's response to a charge of discrimination is very important and can significantly impact the ultimate resolution of a claim. This topic will provide tips for effectively responding to a charge of discrimination. It will provide an overview of the EEOC administrative process and provide tips for drafting effective position statements. It also will discuss other options such as early mediation or informal resolution that may be useful in certain situations.
