Barclay Damon Live: Labor & Employment Podcast—"All Your EEOC Questions Answered, Part 2, With Maureen Kielt"

Ari is again joined by Maureen Kielt, director of the EEOC’s Buffalo Local Office, to continue their conversation from last week’s episode, “All Your EEOC Questions Answered.” In part two, Ari and Maureen dig into what an EEOC investigation entails, who conducts it, and what is asked of the respondents (employers) when an employee files a claim against them. As Maureen mentioned in Episode 31, mediation is generally the first course of action that the EEOC will take; when mediation is not successful or appropriate, investigation is the next move. Even though the Buffalo Local Office is short-staffed, they make every effort to thoroughly investigate all charges, using tactics like fact-finding conferences, on-site visits, requests for information, and requests for position statements from the respondents. Listen in for more details, and tune in next week for part three of their conversation.
