EEOC is about to shift to majority of Republican-appointees

As previously reported, the NLRB recently shifted to a majority of Republican-appointees. Next, with President Trump’s appointments of Janet Dhillon (to be Chair) and Daniel Gade, it will be the EEOC’s turn. Their confirmation (expected by the end of October) will create the first Republican-majority at the EEOC in a decade.

President Trump is expected to nominate a new EEOC General Counsel soon, as well.

These changes will likely have significant impact on issues including LGBTQ protections and equal pay, as well as the EEOC’s recent practice of issuing, without undertaking the requirements for rulemaking, guidances and other non-regulatory publications.
