Skoler Abbott Helps Employers Navigate New EEOC Filing Deadline

SPRINGFIELD — Skoler, Abbott & Presser, P.C. will host a series of webinar sessions to help employers navigate new U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filing deadline.

The EEOC is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age disability, or genetic information. Most employers with at least 15 employees are covered by EEOC laws, along with many labor unions and employment agencies.

Earlier this year, the EEOC published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would require employers to report pay data and hours worked under strict guidelines. Every employer with 100 or more employees and employers who are federal contractors will be required to submit these reports. It is important that employers file reports correctly to avoid legal liability and discrimination claims from regulators and private parties.

Attorneys John Gannon and Stefanie Renaud will present an in-depth webinar on the ins and outs of EEOC filing to properly meet the Sept. 30 filing deadline. They will walk employers through evaluating filing requirements, the time periods for reporting employment data, and how to best categorize job titles and pay data to avoid EEOC scrutiny.

The webinars are slated for Thursday, Aug. 11, Tuesday, Aug. 30, Wednesday, Sept. 7, and Tuesday, Sept. 20, all from 1:30 to 3 p.m. To register an upcoming webinar, visit store.hrhero.com/events.

Gannon has defended employers against claims of discrimination, retaliation, harassment, wrongful termination, as well as actions arising under the Family Medical Leave Act and wage-and-hour law. He also has experience with lawsuits seeking to enforce restrictive covenants and protect trade secrets. He frequently assists employers in litigation-avoidance strategies. He regularly counsels employers on compliance with state and federal laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, and Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Renaud focuses on labor law and employment litigation. Prior to joining Skoler, Abbott & Presser, she interned with the Enforcement Division of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, where she investigated employment-discrimination claims and drafted decisions on behalf of the commission.
