In-depth EEOC trends for your business. Plus, BloggerKing and the Fam hit the Magic Kingdom.

Vacation Day 2: Magic Kingdom proves, well, magical.

Tuesday’s Disney theme may have been germs and yuck, but we turned the corner on Wednesday.

Our day started out with a house party and we kept it going big baller style with my older son Brooks at Space Mountain and a hella-fast, speed-racing test-track run. Meanwhile, my younger son, Pierce, auditioned for Ron Burgundy III before losing his you-know-what on the Buzz Lightyear ride, as my younger daughter, Joely, gave me attitude and more attitude. That’ll be the last time I interrupt her zen on It’s a Small World.  

That left my older daughter, Ivy, who was totally psyched for a slow ride on the tea cups, before catching up with Eeyore, Tigger, W.T.P. and Piglet (ignore the inappropriate caption — I just re-watched A League Of Their Own last week).

All in all, no major meltdowns. A great day!

Back on topic…

I want to give a shout-out to the great team at the Seyfarth Shaw Workplace Class Action blog. They show me lots of love on Twitter.  Plus, they caught the attention of EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum. And, that caught my attention. Therefore, I give you their great report on trends and developments in EEOC-initiated litigation.

The report is 119 pages, so I don’t expect you to read all of it. Heck, I didn’t. But, I’m on vacation. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it. But, there is an Executive Summary and you can thumb through to see what may be coming down the pike, which industries could really feel the sting, and what it’s like to become ensnared in litigation with the EEOC. (Hint: not fun).

While, hopefully, your business has not been caught yet in the EEOC crosshairs, EEOC initiatives are easy for private litigants and their lawyers to co-opt into their own federal lawsuits. So read up, start updating policies, and schedule some training.
