A supervisor sees his employee going into an investigation interview and says, “Just don’t play the race card.” An employee, who was provided new software as a reasonable accommodation, tells you weeks later that her computer has “been glitchy” since the new software was added.
When EEO challenges arise, they rarely show up as run-of-the-mill simple scenarios you’ve worked through in a training class. Are you an EEO professional, attorney or advisor eager to learn how to more effectively manage the unexpected EEO issues? Are you looking for guidance to answer challenging questions, such as: Can an agency be held liable for retaliation in a disciplinary action if the deciding official was unaware of the employee’s prior protected activity? Or when does misuse of an employee’s pronoun constitute sex-based harassment or discrimination?
FELTG’s two-day Advanced EEO virtual training event is an in-depth, highly interactive training that will give you the necessary tools and practical guidance to manage these challenging situations and questions. There will be some basic review of foundational principles followed by breakout workshops where attendees will work through scenarios, building not just knowledge, but a process for effectively responding in all EEO situations, regardless of how perplexing they may be.
