Overview of the webinar

In Fiscal Year 2021, The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission received 61331 discrimination cases.  Think about it, we have 200 workdays a year – so this equates to over 307 a day and 38 every hour.  

  • Sheer numbers indicate that it’s just a matter of time before a discrimination charge crosses your desk. 
  • Get the information you need NOW to be prepared.
  • Your first reaction to receiving a charge of discrimination follows the stages of grief – shock, denial, anger, … some get depressed because they think they may get in trouble.  Then reality sets in and they reach the acceptance and action stages.
  • The fact is discrimination charges are now just one of the risks of doing business.
  • Proper preparation is the key to winning charges of discrimination.
  • Properly responding to a Charge of Discrimination is never fun.

Why should you attend?
