U.S. Chamber leads coalition brief urging D.C. Circuit to reverse district court judgment that (i) overturned OMB’s rejection of EEOC's burdensome new reporting requirement on employers and (ii) imposed an unreasonable timeline for compliance
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e et seq., requires plaintiffs to exhaust claims of employment discrimination with the EEOC before filing suit in federal court. Id. § 2000e-5(b), (f)(1). The question presented is: Whether Title VII’s administrative exhaustion requirement is a jurisdictional prerequisite to suit, as three Circuits have held, or a waivable claimprocessing rule, as eight Circuits have held.
