EEOC Updates Conciliation Program

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has updated its Conciliation Program with a final rule that took effect February 16, 2021. After the agency has investigated a matter and has determined reasonable cause to believe discrimination occurred, the EEOC is required to offer employers the opportunity to conciliate the matter prior to filing a lawsuit. If the employer opts for conciliation, the EEOC must provide a written summary of the facts and information it relied upon during its investigation, as well as the calculations used to base any claim for monetary relief. For more information, see the final rule or the EEOC press release.
