The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has developed and recently released its draft Strategic Plan for 2022 – 2026 and has asked for public comment. The plan, a blueprint of its proposed enforcement plan for the upcoming years, focuses on strategic objectives for the agency accompanied by targeted goals and performance measures. It underscores the Commission’s focus on identifying and pursuing systemic discrimination claims with more robust tools and strategies. The four-year plan establishes a framework for achieving the EEOC’s mission to “prevent and remedy unlawful discrimination and enforce civil rights in the workplace,” so that the nation might realize the Commission’s vision of “fair and inclusive workplaces with equal opportunity for all.” It also makes clear that the Commission will expand its efforts to reach currently “underserved populations through a more technological approach.” Public comments on the document are encouraged but must be received by December 5, 2022. Comments can be submitted through the regulations.gov website here. The agency will also publish a separate Strategic Enforcement Plan (SEP) at a later date. The SEP establishes the agency’s substantive area priorities and will seek separate public comment on the SEP at a later date.
