A- on EEOC Report Card For 2020

On January 19, 2021, the EEOC issued its second Annual Performance Review (or report card), evaluating the agency’s accomplishments in FY20 in comparison to the EEOC’s Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2018-2022. The Plan describes three strategic objectives and goals on which the EEOC must focus. The Plan also identifies 12 performance measures for use each year in gauging the EEOC's progress through fiscal year 2022.

For 2020, the EEOC found that it fully met 10 of the 12 performance measures, and partially met two performance measures. Thus, in 2020, the EEOC’s grade fell slightly to an A- from the A+ it awarded itself in the first Annual Performance Review released in early 2020 for FY19.

Practically, the EEOC’s Annual Performance Review allows employers a very important peek behind the curtain for insights into areas on which the EEOC may focus its enforcement efforts.
