(As the agencies and courts enter their year-end flurry of mischief, I’ll be doing quick posts as needed on the latest developments.)
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has adopted essentially the Strategic Enforcement Plan that I posted about earlier this year. The final version has added “equal pay enforcement” to its list of high priorities. Here is the EEOC’s press release, and here is the final version of the Plan. The Plan will be in effect from Fiscal Years 2013 through 2016. We’ll have to wait and see whether this really translates into more aggressive enforcement against employers.
