Includes Key Federal Sector Decisions

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) today announced that the newest edition of the federal sector Digest of Equal Employment Opportunity Law (EEO Digest) is now available on the EEOC’s website.

The EEO Digest, a quarterly publication prepared by the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations (OFO), features a wide variety of recent Commission decisions and federal court cases of interest. The Digest also includes hyperlinks so stakeholders can easily access the full decisions that have been summarized. This edition of the Digest contains summaries of noteworthy decisions issued by the EEOC, including cases involving attorney’sfees, class complaints, compen­satory damages and case processing. It also includes cases discussing dismissals, findings on the merits, mixed-motive, sanctions, settlement agreements, stating a claim, summary judgment, and timeliness.

The summaries are neither intended to be exhaustive or definitive as to the selected subject matter, nor are they to be given the legal weight of case law in citations. In addition to the quarterly Digest, Commission federal sector decisions are available on the EEOC’s website. The public may also receive federal sector information updates and news items via GovDelivery and Twitter.
