Written by Ernie Hadley, a practitioner before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for more than 25 years and lecturer on EEO practice, and Deryn Sumner, an attorney also practicing before the EEOC, EEO Counselors’ and Investigators’ Manual is an easy read and written exclusively for counselors and investigators. This manual combines the EEOC's Part 1614 regulations and guidance with the authors' years of practical experience. New counselors and investigators will learn everything they need to know, and seasoned counselors and investigators will gain fresh insights and techniques to use every day.

The information is comprehensive, and the book is divided into three separate sections:
