Federal OCR and EEOC Unlawful Discrimination Complaints: A Comprehensive Guide for Schools

Many schools are seeing a rise in federal OCR and EEOC complaints of discrimination by students, staff members, and even school visitors and attendees at public meetings. This webinar is designed to take a detailed look at these two federal complaint procedures and provide insight and information regarding each step of the process, from the receipt of notice of a complaint and potential early resolution through the investigation process and formal notice of findings. This session provides an overview of the complaint and investigation procedures and offers schools as well as practical tips and tools at each step of the process.

Please join attorney Erin Gilsbach as she discusses concepts such as when schools should involve attorneys, early resolution procedures and their pros and cons, essential components of a written response, investigation procedures, the nature of the authority and limitations of authority assigned to federal investigators, and the legal rights of the school during and after the investigation process. This session is essential for all school administrators, deans, human resources personnel, special education and student services personnel, and anyone else who may have any involvement in a federal OCR or EEOC discrimination investigation.
