On October 9, 2020, a proposed amendment to the EEOC’s procedural rules was published for public comment in the Federal Register. In a press release announcing the publication, the agency explained that its goal in amending the regulations is “to enhance the effectiveness and accountability of the conciliation process.” The Commission stated it is seeking feedback on whether the proposed process would “result in additional challenges to the Commission’s conciliation efforts, and whether such challenges would delay or adversely impact litigation brought by the Commission.”
The proposed rulemaking available on the Federal Register’s website. Comments can be submitted through November 9, 2020.
