Law Week Colorado Quotes Heather Vickles Regarding New EEOC Online Portal for Employees

November 27, 2017 – Law Week Colorado quotes Sherman & Howard employment attorney, Heather Vickles, in the article “EEOC Launches Online Portal for Workers.” On November 1, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) rolled out nationwide its Public Portal, allowing workers to submit inquiries to the commission, which could lead to appointments with EEOC staff and possibly discrimination charges against their employers.  Heather says, the Public Portal’s accessibility will likely lead to more initial inquiries from workers, but not necessarily a spike in full-fledged charges against employers, stating that “the process is still going to be constrained by the EEOC’s manpower in following up.”
