The Senate HELP Committee recently conducted oversight hearings on the EEOC's enforcement process (May 19, 2015). The hearings are now available online. The focus of these hearings is primarily on the EEOC's enforcement and litigation programs. Chair Jenny Yang testified through both a written and oral statement (available here), as well as General Counsel David Lopez (available here). The hearings are interesting and provide a helpful perspective on the EEOC's approach to litigation. While these hearings took place last week, the EEOC's website is a great source of information for this type of testimony before Congress, and includes older hearings on pay equity as well as issues related to age discrimination.
The hearings are definitely worth taking a look at, particularly if you are working on any scholarship related to these issues.
