WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) today announced the latest edition of its federal sector Digest of Equal Employment Opportunity Law

"This annual compilation edition of noteworthy decisions provides a convenient reference for federal sector stakeholders," said Carlton M. Hadden, director of the EEOC's Office of Federal Operations (OFO). "The latest issue highlights important 2017 case decisions."

The EEO Digest, a quarterly publication prepared by OFO, features a wide variety of recent Commission decisions and federal court cases of interest. The Digest also includes hyperlinks so that stakeholders can easily access the full decisions that have been summarized. This edition of the Digest contains summaries of noteworthy decisions issued by EEOC, including cases involving: Agency Processing, Attorneys' Fees, Class Complaints, Compensatory Damages, Dismissals, Findings on the Merits, Official Time, Remedies, Sanctions, Settlement Agreements, Stating a Claim, Summary Judgment, and Timeliness.

The summaries are neither intended to be exhaustive or definitive as to the selected subject matter, nor are they to be given the legal weight of case law in citations. The full text of Commission federal sector decisions summarized in the Digest are available on the EEOC's website.

The public may also receive federal sector information updates and news items via GovDelivery and Twitter.
