U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
Expert Attorneys Will Speak on Cutting-Edge Issues
WASHINGTON -- The EEOC Training Institute and Washington Field Office of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) are pleased to announce their 7th annual Advanced EEO Workshops, to be held on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at ASAE & the Center for Association Leadership Conference Center, 1575 I Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.
Two in-depth and stimulating half-day workshops, led by attorneys who are experts in equal employment opportunity (EEO) law, will provide the latest insights and perspectives on this fast-evolving subject to experienced practitioners involved in making critical EEO decisions. The morning workshop on ADA/FMLA/workers' compensation, presented by panelists from EEOC's Office of Legal Counsel and the Department of Labor, will offer valuable guidance on leave and accommodation issues under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), and state workers' compensation laws.
Panelists in the afternoon workshop, entitled "Skeletons in the Closet? -- The Impact of Employment Screening Procedures on Recruitment and Hiring," will explore the cutting-edge topics of consumer credit reports, criminal records, social media searches and other new background checks that can pose major challenges for individuals in obtaining and maintaining employment.
The fee of $175 for each workshop includes breakfast, snacks and detailed course notes. Lunch will also be served to registrants who attend both the morning and afternoon workshops.
