    Defending Your Hill: What You Should (and Should Not) Do

    When You Receive a Charge of Discrimination

    September 20, 2017  -  5:00 - 8:00 p.m.

    PSA Financial Learning Center - 11311 McCormick Road, Suite 500, Hunt Valley, Maryland 21031

    presented by Donna Glover and Jennifer Curry 

    If you have ever had to address a current or former employee’s EEOC (or state or local agency) Charge of Discrimination, you know that drafting a winning statement of position is critical to favorably resolving the charge. This is particularly true now that the EEOC has new nationwide procedures that provide for the release of a your statement of position and non-confidential attachments to your current or former employee, and/or their attorney. And, the EEOC’s new Respondent Portal is intended to increase the speed with which the EEOC adjudicates charges. So, you must be ready with the firepower you need to successfully “defend your hill!”

    The workshop will focus on how HR Practitioners can better “defend their hill” to minimize risk of full-scale EEOC investigations and to strategically craft responses to charges to mitigate further investigation and lawsuits. This workshop will cover important tips on:
     - an employer’s obligations to preserve documents;
     - conducting an internal investigation of a charge;
     - ensuring that the charge response contains the appropriate level of information to increase the chances of resolving the case at the charge stage;
     - when to consider mediation of a charge;
     - tips on minimizing the threat of a class disparate impact claim and litigation.
