The EEOC offers a variety of training programs geared specifically to federal employees. The interactive training is ideal for federal supervisors and workers, EEO counselors and investigators, agency representatives and attorneys, as well as anyone else interested in EEO issues and practices affecting the federal workplace.
Course offerings meet training requirements for EEO counselors and investigators as outlined in Management Directive (MD) 110. Other courses are tailored to meet the needs of federal managers, those responsible for conducting MD-715 barrier analyses, and drafters of final agency decisions.
"Proactive prevention is the best medicine to stop discrimination before it starts," said Carlton Hadden, director of the EEOC's Office of Federal Operations. "Education and training on EEO is an effective and modest investment in preventing workplace disputes."
The 2014 course schedule includes:
EEO and HR for Managers & Supervisors (joint EEOC/OPM program)
Basics of MD-715
Disability Program Management (basic and advanced)
Drafting Final Agency Decisions
EEO Laws Refresher
Counselor and Investigator Refresher
New Counselor and New Investigator
The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination in the public and private sectors. Further information is available on EEOC's website at www.eeoc.gov.
