U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
The Commission has begun a new Manual in a different format. Sections will be added as they are issued.
In August 2009, the EEOC issued a revision of the "Threshold Issues" Compliance Manual section to address the time limitations for filing charges alleging compensation discrimination pursuant to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009. The time limitations for filing compensation discrimination charges is addressed in the new subsection § 2-IV C.4, "Compensation Discrimination."
In July, 2005, EEOC issued a revision of the subsection of the "Threshold Issues" Compliance Manual section concerning time limitations for filing charges, which was originally issued in 2000. The revision conforms the Manual's discussion of the continuing violation doctrine to the Supreme Court's decision in National Railroad Passenger Corp. v. Morgan, 536 U.S. 101 (2002). This revision replaces § 2-IV.C, "When Did the Alleged Violation Take Place?" The new section § 2-IV.C is captioned: "When Can a Discriminatory Act Be Challenged?"
