Employment Law This Week (Episode 94: Week of November 13, 2017) has released bonus footage of its interview with Yael Spiewak, an Associate at Epstein Becker Green.
As Ms. Spiewak discusses, the EEOC has launched a new nationwide EEOC Public Portal where individuals can inquire about discrimination online. Starting this month, individuals can submit inquiries and requests for intake interviews online. They can also digitally sign and file a charge prepared by the EEOC and engage with the agency as the charge progresses. The portal, which was piloted in five regional EEOC offices, aims to increase efficiency at the agency and make interaction easier for individuals.
