Hadden, "particularly those who are navigating the process for the first time, as well as for EEO counselors, investigators, attorneys, professional staff and practitioners."

While these summaries are not intended to be exhaustive or definitive as to their subject matter, and may not be given the legal weight of case law in citations, they are a good source of relevant information.
In addition to the quarterly Digest, Commission federal sector decisions are available on the EEOC's website at http://www.eeoc.gov/federal/decisions.cfm. The public may also receive federal sector information updates and news items via Twitter: @EEOC_OFO.
The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination in the public and private sectors. Further information about the EEOC is available online at www.eeoc.gov.
