The EEOC has released a draft of its 2012-2016 Strategic Plan for public comment.
The Plan, which sets out EEOC’s goals and initiatives for the next four years, is now open for comment. It focuses largely on systemic discrimination and a reduction of backlogged charges.
Its focus is unsurprising, especially given the EEOC’s recent attention on nationwide issues such as using arrest and conviction records and credit checks, and the interaction between the FMLA and the ADA.
And, hopefully, the backlog issue will speed the process to resolve charges more quickly.
