This is the September 19, 2019 hearing on "Examining the Policies and Priorities of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)," held before the House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Human Services, of the Committee on Education and Labor. From the opening statement of Suzanne Bonamici: "Today's hearing will examine the policies and priorities of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the EEOC, and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, OFCCP. These are the two primary agencies responsible for combating workplace discrimination and harassment and their oversight is as necessary today as ever before. Today the median Black worker earns only 75 percent of the wage earned by the median White worker. One in four LGBTQ [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer] workers reports experiencing some form of discrimination in the workplace. And more than 60 percent of workers over the age of 45 report seeing or experiencing age discrimination in the workplace. [...] [A]s our workplace becomes increasingly diverse, we need the EEOC and the OFCCP to get back on track." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Cindy Brown Barnes, Janet Dhillon, and Craig Leen.
