New 'Digest of EEO Law' Issued by EEOC

Fall Quarterly Edition Includes Variety of Key Federal Sector Decisions

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) today announced the latest edition of its federal sector Digest of Equal Employment Opportunity Law, which is available online at http://www.eeoc.gov/federal/digest/xxiii-4.cfm

This quarterly publication, prepared by the EEOC's Office of Federal Operations (OFO), features recent Commission decisions and federal court cases of interest.

"The Digest of EEO Law contains a wealth of comprehensive information on key topics affecting federal employees and stakeholders alike," said OFO Director Carlton M. Hadden. "This should be required reading for everyone in the federal EEO community -- including counselors, investigators, attorneys, professional staff and practitioners."

The Fall 2012 edition of the Digest contains a sampling of summaries of noteworthy decisions selected by OFO from among the volume of decisions issued by EEOC each fiscal year. The latest edition features case summaries covering issues such as Agency Processing, Class Complaints, Compensatory Damages, Findings on the Merits, Retaliation, Mixed Motive, Remedies, Sanctions, Settlement Agreements and Timeliness among others.

While these summaries are not intended to be exhaustive or definitive as to their subject matter, and may not be given the legal weight of case law in citations, they provide practitioners with relevant information in one place.

In addition to the quarterly Digest, Commission federal sector decisions are available on the EEOC's website at http://www.eeoc.gov/federal/decisions.cfm. The public may also receive federal sector information updates and news items via Twitter: @EEOC_OFO.

The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination in the public and private sectors. Further information about the EEOC is available online at www.eeoc.gov.
