Administration Attempts to Maintain GOP Majority at NLRB and EEOC Regardless of Election Results

Republicans have done their best to maintain their majority at the Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) regardless of November's election results.  In September, two Republicans and one Democrat were confirmed to the EEOC in separate votes.  Confirmation of the three new Commissioners provides the EEOC with its first full complement of Commissioners during the Trump Administration.  The confirmation of the three new Commissioners give the Republicans three members on the five-seat Board until at least July 2022.

An example of the importance of these developments is that in the near future, the EEOC will have to resolve new regulations dealing with company-sponsored wellness programs, whether or how to collect workforce pay data, and a joint employer proposal under Title VII.

Similar developments have occurred at the NLRB, as the current Republican majority will also remain in place until at least mid-2022.
