What is the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Plan?

Posted by Eric Kingsley | Aug 06, 2013 | 0 Comments

In late 2012, the EEOC approved a Strategic Enforcement Plan aimed at creating national enforcement policies to help aid in their mission to put an end to unlawful employment discrimination.  The plan was created to support their Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2012-2016.

The Strategic Enforcement Plan has six priorities:

1.   Eliminating barriers in recruitment and hiring

Targeting practices discriminating against individuals based on race, religioun, age, sex, and disabilities.

2.    Protecting immigrant, migrant and other vulnerable workers

Targeting unequal pay, segregation, harassment, trafficking, and other discriminatory policies

3.    Addressing emerging and developing employment discrimination issues

Targeting issues associated with events, demographic changes, theories, laws, or judicial decision

4.    Enforcing equal pay laws

Targeting unfair compensation practices based on gender

5.    Preserving access to the legal system

Targeting policies and practices that discourage individuals from exercising their rights under discrimination statutes, or impede investigative and enforcement efforts

6.    Preventing harassment through systemic enforcement and targeted outreach

With this Strategic Enforcement Plan, the EEOC hopes to ensure consistent operations throughout its 53 offices.
