Yikes. I hope I haven't missed anybody. Wild week!

We hope that the immigrant strikes are about over by now, but they may continue into today, and a women's strike is reportedly set for March 8. Do Hot Dog Man.flickrCC.JeleneMorrisemployers have any recourse when their employees go out on strike? It depends. If the strike is "protected concerted activity" (and it may be), then employers will need to tread carefully and ...

As we have previously reported, the new EEO-1 Form is set to be used as of March 31, 2018, for the October-December "snapshot" period in 2017. The new form will require federal contractors and employers with 100 or more employees to provide summary compensation data to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in eachAngelique Lyons EEO-1 category, divided into 12 "pay bands," and classified by ...

How can an employer best prevent workplace harassment from occurring, and deal with it effectively when it occurs? What would the EEOC say employers should do?

This is my third and final installment on the proposed Enforcement Guidance on Unlawful Harassment, which was recently issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC is accepting comments until ...

On January 3, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued final regulations intended to increase the number of individuals with disabilities employed by federal agencies. The new regulations require that each federal agency aim to have a workforce of which 12 percent have disabilities and 2 percent of that 12 percent have "targeted" or severe ...

Last week, I shared with you what I didn't like about the proposed Enforcement Guidance from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on workplace harassment.

Well, this is warm-and-fuzzy week. Moving on to the parts of the proposed guidance that IHug Kitty.flickrCC.joyousjoym thought were well done, I've tried to boil the rest of the proposed guidance into nine key points. I'll do one more post next week ...

This week, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued a proposed Enforcement Guidance on workplace harassment. It's 75 pages long, so a little too much to cover in a single blog post. The EEOC is seeking comments from the public until February 9, so I will3231-EEOC_SEAL_2 start with the comment-worthy provisions. Next week, I'll post about the proposed Guidance more generally. Overall, the ...

A federal judge in the District of Columbia has denied the AARP's request for a preliminary injunction against the wellness rules issued by the Equal Employment OpportunityThumbs Down.flickrCC.CharlesLeBlanc Commission last May. As a result, the EEOC rules -- which establish when participation in an employer-sponsored wellness program is "voluntary" within the meaning of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the ...

This has been a weird year for me. (And, no, I'm not even thinking about the election!) But ITurkeyDrawing.flickrCC.LovelornPoets have much to be thankful for, and I hope you do, too.

BREAKING THING TO BE THANKFUL FOR: Yesterday evening, the U.S. Department of Labor's new rule governing white-collar exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act was struck down by a federal judge in Texas. I'll have more on the decision ...

Was the EEOC more laid-back this past fiscal year than it was in FY15?

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued its Fiscal Year 2016 Performance Report this week (here's the press release, in case you don't want to read all3231-EEOC_SEAL_2 104 pages of the report), and the agency seems to have slowed down a bit, as compared with the prior year.

(The EEOC's fiscal year runs from October 1 ...
