Adam Sencenbaugh in HR Magazine: Shutdown, Drop in Number of Commissioners Put EEOC on Hold

HR Magazine talked with Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Adam Sencenbaugh for an article about the effect of the partial government shutdown on operations at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
