It’s your opportunity to demand that the EEOC properly enforce the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967. The Strategic Plan is a framework for the allocation of EEOC resources. You can be sure that employers and their advocates will weigh in.
In recent years, the EEOC has become a lap dog to corporate interests.
A main focus of the EEOC today is providing free mediation to resolve discrimination complaints. Mediation outcomes almost always favor the company – not clueless, unrepresented discrimination victims – while saving employers potentially millions of dollars. For good measure, the EEOC assures discriminatory employers anonymity so that workers back at the farm will remain ignorant.
