Good Report on a Bad EEOC


The Littler law firm has a comprehensive and interesting report on what the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has been up to, and it’s not reassuring. Among its priorities are “systemic” investigations and lawsuits (which I suspect generally mean “disparate impact” claims) and figuring out some way, any way to make discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation illegal under existing federal employment law (though Congress has never passed any such legislation). Also discussed in the report are the agency’s numerous recent setbacks in the courts.
