EEOC's Reading Room

The Freedom of Information Act requires each agency to make certain types of records available to the public for inspection and copying. These materials are maintained in a reading room (generally the library for headquarters and a designated reading area for the field offices, unless space is unavailable).

The materials which are to be maintained in a reading room include: (A) final opinions, including concurring and dissenting opinions, as well as orders, made in the adjudication of cases; (B) those statements of policy and interpretations which have been adopted by the agency, and are not published in the Federal Register; and (C) administrative staff manuals and instructions to staff that affect a member of the public. 5 U.S.C. Section 552 (a)(2). A listing of the Commission's reading room materials can be found in Appendix A of EEOC Order 150.001, Disclosure of Information Under the Freedom of Information Act, which was issued on September 19, 2008.

The Electronic FOIA Amendments of 1996, Public Law, 104-231, 5 U.S.C. Section 552, require any Commission reading room materials created after November 1, 1996 to be placed on-line.

In order to provide for quick and easy access to these records, EEOC is making them available on this web site. Our collection is not yet complete, however, the following items are currently available for your use.
