Equal Employment Opportunity Pressures on Colleges and Universities--Present and Pending.
Steinbach, Sheldon Elliot
Presented in this paper is a discussion of various federal demands and their ramifications concerning nondiscriminatory employment practices in higher education. These demands require that colleges and universities desiring or holding federal contracts eliminate all traces of discriminatory practices with regard to faculty recruitment, hiring, anti-nepotism policies, placement, job classification and assignment, promotion, termination, conditions of work, salary rights and benefits, leave policies and fringe benefits. A complaint of discrimination may be filed by or on behalf of an individual or by one of the Commissioners of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Notice of the charge is forwarded to the employer within 10 days stating the date, place and circumstances of the alleged unfair employment practice. After an investigation, if a finding of discrimination is confirmed and the employer and complainant have failed to reach conciliation, the individual or the Commission may file suit. If a court finds that an employer has intentionally engaged in an unlawful employment practice, it has the authority to enjoin the respondent from such practices, order affirmative action that may be necessary, and any other equitable relief that it may deem appropriate.
