What Does The EEOC Do If It Determines That A Violation Of The Law Has Occurred?

If the EEOC determines that there is reasonable cause to believe that discrimination occurred, a written determination and invitation to enter into settlement discussions are issued to the parties. If settlement efforts are not successful, the EEOC and/or the charging party may file a lawsuit against the employer for unlawful discrimination.
