On September 22, 2022, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will hold a meeting on “Shaping the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Priorities” which will be the final listening session in a series to obtain public input on future enforcement priorities, according to a press release from the EEOC.  

The public can attend the meeting – which will start at 10 a.m. and conclude at 3 p.m Eastern Time – virtually or in person. Witnesses will include representatives from civil rights and workers’ rights organizations, employer and human resource representatives, and attorneys representing plaintiffs and defendants in EEO matters.

The meeting will be the third and last in a series of listening sessions inviting public input into the agency’s Strategic Enforcement Plan (SEP) for fiscal years 2022-2026. After the agency completes the listening session series, it will consider the feedback from these sessions and any written input to develop a proposed SEP.

The first listening session focused on racial and economic justice and was held in Buffalo, New York, on August 22, 2022. The second listening session focused on vulnerable workers and was held virtually on September 12, 2022. The third listening session will be held virtually and at EEOC headquarters in Washington, DC.

The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex (pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 years or older), disability, or genetic information.
