The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced the latest edition of its federal sector Digest of Equal Employment Opportunity Law (EEO Digest), which is available on the EEOC’s website.

This edition (Fiscal Year 2017, Volume 3) features a special article titled “Establishing Disparate Treatment Discrimination.” The comprehensive article discusses the analysis of disparate treatment discrimination claims and recent Commission decisions.

“Unlawful discrimination based on disparate treatment is one of the most common issues raised in federal sector EEO complaints,” explained Carlton M. Hadden, director of the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations (OFO). “This article is an excellent resource to help stakeholders understand the burdens of proof in a disparate treatment discrimination complaint.”

The EEO Digest, a quarterly publication prepared by OFO, features a wide variety of recent Commis¬≠sion decisions and federal court cases of interest. The Digest also includes hyperlinks so that stakeholders can easily access the full decisions which have been summarized. This edition of the Digest contains summaries of noteworthy decisions issued by EEOC, including cases involving: Agency Processing, Attorneys’ Fees, Class Complaints, Compensatory Damages, Dismissals, Findings on the Merits, Official Time, Remedies, 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.
