New EEOC Chair Named

06.29.2017

It was announced yesterday that President Trump has selected Janet Dhillon to serve as the new chair of the EEOC.  Ms. Dhillon currently serves as general counsel of Burlington Stores, Inc.

The EEOC still has one vacancy, and another position on the Commission will open next month.  If President Trump fills these spots, the new commissioners, along with the new chair, may be implementing policy and/or enforcement changes.

We will continue to watch how the new chair affects the EEOC’s decision-making and priorities.
