Akin Gump Partner and Former EEOC General Counsel Publishes Treatise on EEOC Litigation

(Washington, D.C.) – Former EEOC general counsel Donald R. Livingston, a partner in the labor and employment practice of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, has authored the just-published EEOC Litigation and Charge Resolution (BNA 2005), the firm announced today. The book provides an insider’s view of how the EEOC works, where and how decisions are made, and how to effectively interact with the EEOC during litigation and the various stages of charge processing.

Invaluable for plaintiffs’ counsel and defense counsel alike, the treatise provides information on the EEOC’s litigation and settlement practices and clarifies when and how the EEOC uses investigative subpoenas and when it litigates to enforce them. The treatise also discusses the EEOC’s litigation practices and the special rules that apply to EEOC litigation, and explains how and when the EEOC and defendants rely on expert testimony. Finally, EEOC Litigation and Charge Resolution provides information on how the EEOC exercises its authority to seek temporary injunctions, and how the EEOC conducts its appellate litigation and amicus participation.

Mr. Livingston leads Akin Gump’s labor and employment practice group in Washington, D.C. He represents large employers in all aspects of civil rights and employment discrimination law, with an emphasis on complex employment litigation.
