When a complaint is filed with your agency’s EEO office, it’s possible that something very wrong has happened. However, how you respond to that complaint could go a long way toward not only resolviing the complaint, but ensuring that you don’t make matters even worse than they are.
EEOC decisions are littered with reversals of agency’s FADs finding no discrimination. Oftentimes, the EEOC and the agency have a different concept of what makes a corrective action “prompt and effective.” And too often, response to an EEO complaint lead to claims of reprisal – even when it’s found that the original complaint had no standing.
In this 60-minute webinar, Attorney Meghan Droste will identifty all of the pitfalls that lay waiting for agencies who fail to properly respond to an EEO complaint.
This is the final webinar in our four-part series Navigating Challenges in the EEO Process.

- Determine what to do when you learn of a discrimination or harassment complaint
