The Guidebook for EEOC Lawyers


Recently I mentioned that EEOC trial lawyers were becoming a force in the courtroom. If you want to see their internal playbook check out the newly issued, Regional Attorneys' Manual. It ranges from the administrative procedure which any organization has to deal with (and which it is often helpful to know about if you are on the other side) and also substantive issues related to lawsuits. For example, the Information Sheet on Nonpecuniary Compensatory Damages [pdf] the Commission gives to individual plaintiffs to allow them input on whether they want to seek damages that may allow discovery into very private matters, might be very helpful if the Commission is objecting to the scope of your discovery into mental anguish related issues.

All in all a helpful reference when you find yourself opposite the EEOC in litigation.
