Equal Employment Opportunity Commission December 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Official Time in Federal Sector Cases Before the Commission
Document Number: 2019-26545
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-12-11
Agency: Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or Commission) proposes amending its rule covering official time for representatives who are employees of the federal government. The Commission seeks to clarify that its rule concerning official time does not apply to representatives who serve in an official capacity in a labor organization that is the exclusive representative of employees in an appropriate unit. The Commission is doing this because it believes that the relevant labor relations statute articulates the best policy for determining if someone receives official time when they act for a labor organization and the Commission does not want its regulations to undermine this approach.
