The EEOC has issued updated guidelines for the Federal sector EEO process. MD 110 is the bible for Federal sector practitioners as it sets forth the process and rules for litigating for Federal employees before the EEOC. The updated guidelines provide clarifications and reflect changes in case law over the past sixteen years.

“As the nation’s largest employer, the federal government must lead the way in ensuring equal employment opportunity for all of its workers,” said EEOC Chair Jenny R. Yang. “EEOC’s Management Directive 110 provides vital guidance on equal employment opportunity policies and procedures to federal agencies. Revisions to Management Directive 110 bring it in line with current case law and practice and strengthen our ability to protect the rights of workers under federal EEO statutes.”
