Hofstra Labor & Employment Law Journal


Co-authored by two attorneys in the Office of General Counsel at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, this article first traces the history of the EEOC, which shares the same birthday as Title VII, with a focus on the Commission's charge processing, investigation, conciliation and litigation practices against private employers. Next, the article describes the Commission's current charge-processing system and litigation practice. Finally, the authors explore the question of whether the EEOC still matters forty years after Title VII's enactment.
