Series Description

Equal Employment Opportunity claims can be a long and often complicated process, and some challenges are a bit more troublesome than others. It’s those topics we are tackling during this four-part webinar series. What are the mistakes agencies most often make when dismissing EEO complaints? Can you discipline an employee who is on a reasonable accommodation? How do you determine whether your agency is liable when a contractor files an EEO complaint? Can your agency be sanctioned if the EEO investigation becomes adversarial? Join us for this webinar series to get answers to these and other perplexing questions, and ensure that you successfully navigate the EEO process.

Sessions will be held on Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET.
