Johnson & Bell Shareholders, Joseph F. Spitzzeri and Genevieve M. LeFevour, will be the featured presenters in C4CM’s webinar, “Drafting EEOC Position Statements: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Writing Position Statements that Withstand EEOC Scrutiny,” taking place on Monday, March 26.
According to C4CM, EEOC charges have become a virtual constant for employment counsel and human resources. The manner in which one responds to a charge can make the difference between the EEOC dismissing the charge and launching an attack in the courts.
This webinar will cover what to include in a position statement and position statement drafting techniques for class action/individual/failure to hire, and equal pay claims. The session will also go over wording that could raise red flags with the EEOC, as well as internal investigation techniques that keep EEOC position statements in mind.
Additional learning objectives of the webinar will include who has access to an individual’s position statement and when, how to handle confidential supporting documents upon submission, which information should/will be treated as confidential and who should sign the statement.
