EXCEL Private Sector Attendees May Earn Continuing Legal Education Credits

EEOC Commissioner Jenny Yang will lead a panel on wage discrimination

WASHINGTON - We are pleased to announce that our private sector EXCEL Program has qualified for continuing legal education credits and attendees may receive recertification credits from HRCI (application pending). Also new and noteworthy will be Commissioner Jenny Yang, the President's most recent appointment to EEOC, who will lead a panel on wage discrimination.

For the first time this year, the program will offer a complete, separate agenda on cutting edge developments in the private sector, which also includes state and local employees. Topics include EEOC's recent Enforcement Guidance on the Use of Criminal Records; the seven mistakes employers make when they get a charge of discrimination, wage discrimination and more.

Now in its 16th year, this annual event has brought together federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), Human Resources and Alternate Dispute Resolution practitioners, members of the private bar and EEOC experts to discuss the laws and procedures governing equal employment opportunity in the federal sector. 

Registration for the event, including the closed training sessions, is still open. Registration questions can be directed to 1(866)446-0940 or 1(800)828-1120 (TTY) or eeoc.traininginstitute@eeoc.gov.

The EEOC is responsible for enforcing federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination. Further information about the EEOC is available on its web site at www.eeoc.gov.
