New Digest of EEO Law Issued by EEOC


Winter  Quarterly Edition Includes Variety of Key Federal Sector Decisions

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity  Commission (EEOC) today announced the latest edition of its federal sector Digest of Equal Employment Opportunity Law,  which is available online at

This quarterly publication, prepared by the EEOC's Office of  Federal Operations (OFO), features recent agency decisions and federal court  cases of interest. The latest edition also includes a special article on Sanctions  for Contumacious Conduct.

"The Digest of EEO Law,  a treasure trove of information, is required reading for anyone who wants to be  well-versed in the federal sector EEO community," said OFO Director Carlton M.  Hadden, "particularly those who are navigating the process for the first time,  as well as for EEO counselors, investigators, attorneys, professional staff and  practitioners."

The Winter 2013 edition of the Digest contains a sampling of summaries of noteworthy decisions  selected by OFO from among the volume of decisions issued by EEOC each fiscal  year, including topics such as:

  • Federal Sector EEO Complaint Processing
  • Attorneys' Fees
  • Compensatory Damages
  • Remedies
  • Sanctions
  • Settlement Agreements,
  • Summary Judgment
  • Timeliness

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  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
