Schroeder Quoted on the EEOC’s Recent Anti-Harassment Proposal

09 February 2017 Law360 News
Partner Don Schroeder was quoted in a Law 360 article, “EEOC Civility Training Pitch Could Leave Employers in a Bind,” covering the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) proposal to increase the implementation of “workplace civility training, which contradicts the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recent rulings against workplace civility rules.

Schroeder explained: “Cognitive dissonance [between the two agencies’ approaches] is probably an understatement. It’s an interesting confluence of guidance from one agency toward another.”

The article continues to discuss both the EEOC and NLRB’s positions, noting that employers may be unsure of how to proceed with these mixed messages. Schroeder adds that the EEOC’s proposal is not a mandate for employers and that it may be more likely that employers stick with “more traditional, annual anti-discrimination and anti-harassment trainings,” as a long-term solution to inappropriate workplace behavior.
