Less known is the aggressiveness with which the EEOC has been pursuing small and mid-sized companies for allegedly discriminatory practices </li></ul><ul><li>Settlements, in many of these cases, have exceeded $1 million </li></ul>Copyright ©2009 WOLF HR Solutions℠ “ An Ounce of Prevention… … Is worth a pound of cure.” While no amount of effort can eliminate the risk of EEOC action or litigation, a firm’s proactive actions and quality responses can make a major difference! --- J.J.
