With the EEOC winning its largest jury verdict ever in early May*, it is expected they will use this to leverage future settlement negotiations. XpertHR’s Head of Content Peggy Carter-Ward says “Employers will need to ensure all of their EEO policies and procedures are up-to-date, and supervisors properly trained, so they are not faced with similar challenges as the agency continues its pursuit of claims in 2013”.

Managing a workplace to be free of discrimination and harassment is challenging. XpertHR can help you stay compliant with quick reference guides, FAQs and “How To” documents, including a free “How To Prevent Discrimination in the Workplace” to help with this particular compliance challenge, giving you instant access to the pertinent laws and how to apply them.
