Commissioner @ChaiFeldblum Offers Her Perspective on the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Plan

From the Corporate Law Report, the first of what we hope will be many insightful pieces on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and US labor law from Chai Feldblum, EEOC Commissioner and former Georgetown Law professor:

“The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enters the New Year with the wind at its back. Following the enactment in February 2012 of a four-year Strategic Plan that addressed all aspects of the agency’s work, the Commission met the plan’s first performance measure with the enactment in December 2012 of a Strategic Enforcement Plan for 2013-2016 (SEP).

There are three take-aways from the SEP:

1) The agency’s targeted focus on select areas of law will hopefully result in a demonstrable impact on unlawful discrimination in those areas.

2) An active and engaged Commission will stay abreast of activities undertaken pursuant to its delegated authority.

3) The Commission will take steps necessary to bring coherence and vigor to its federal sector work.”
