Course Description


Attention EEO Counselors: meet your mandatory 8-hour refresher training with FELTG this summer in Washington, DC.

The EEO world is constantly changing and it’s crucial to stay on top of things.  According to recent statistics, the average EEO complaint takes over 3.5 years to process. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to resolve some of these disputes before they go formal?

This session, presented by attorney at law Deborah Hopkins and Ricky Rowe, former National EEO Manager for the VA, will give you insight to the most essential areas counselors and investigators need to know in 2018. Topics include:

  • The importance of the counselor’s approach in the precomplaint process
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution in the EEO process
  • Interviewing techniques
  • Focused topics: sexual harassment updates; reasonable accommodation trends
  • Mistakes to avoid
  • Achieving resolution before litigation

The program runs from 8:30 – 4:30.
