Bruce’s Summary: The author’s give a fair warning for those employers who are facing retaliation claims from the EEOC. It appears that when depositions occur, “pursuant to its “recipe for retaliation claims,” the government will use any unfavorable deposition testimony as the “ingredients” in its likely forthcoming motion for summary judgement.”

The authors warn employers to be careful in how they approach these type depositions so as to not give the EEOC the ingredients it needs to cook up a successful summary judgement motion. The authors close with recommending employers ensure all appropriate information be highlighted in its written response to the EEOC concerning the allegations and ensure such relevance information is placed on the record during depositions.
