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

“The Digest of EEO Law is a great resource for the federal sector EEO community,” said Carlton Hadden, director of the Office of Federal Operations (OFO). “We welcome your comments or suggestions for future topics by emailing us at”

The EEO Digest, a quarterly publication prepared by OFO, features a wide variety of recent commission 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 EEO Digest contains summaries of noteworthy decisions issued by EEOC, including cases involving Compensatory Damages, Complaint Processing, Dismissals, Findings on the Merits, Mixed Motive, Remedies, Sanctions, Settlement Agreements, Stating a Claim, Summary Judgment, and Timeliness.

The summaries are intended neither 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.
