The Department of Justice Looks at EEO Enforcement.
Reynolds, William Bradford
In this statement the Assistant Attorney General (Civil Rights Division) discusses the Reagan administration's plans for ensuring the enforcement of equal employment opportunities. Civil rights legislation and court litigation involving racial quotas and preferential treatment are discussed. While the author stresses the Justice Department's commitment to seeking affirmative remedies such as back pay, retroactive seniority, reinstatement, and hiring and promotional priorities, the use of quotas is said to be unjustified. Rather, the requirement of comprehensive employment recruitment techniques is said to be one way to ensure that employers follow nondiscriminatory, sex and race neutral employment practices.
