    Over the past year the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commissions (EEOC) has taken steps to expand its substantive scope and procedural powers. This interactive session will advise employers on new and renewed EEOC initiatives such as: pregnancy discrimination, protection for transgender employees, criminal background checks, handbook and policy audits, and pay discrimination. Additionally, the expanding scope of EEOC investigations, including a focus on class action investigations and subpoena powers, will be discussed.
