  • Providing for EEOC notices to non-compliant agencies;
  • Permitting pilot projects for EEO complaint processing;
  • Requiring agencies to issue a notice of rights to complainants when the investigation will not be timely completed;
  • Requiring agencies to submit complaint files and appeals documents to EEOC in digital formats;
  • And making administrative judge decisions on the merits of class complaints final with both parties having the right to appeal to EEOC.
