Federal agencies are too quick to dismiss employee discrimination charges, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC reversed a third of all cases dismissed by agencies between 2008 and 2012 without investigations or hearings. The agency received more than 1,500 dismissal appeals in fiscal 2012, and remanded nearly 700 back to agencies. Carlton Hadden is director of the Office of Federal Operations for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss what federal managers can do to avoid having decisions overturned.

The EEOC explores social media in the workplace.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission held a meeting Wednesday to examine how social media impacts employees' claims of discrimination -- either in the workplace, itself, or during the hiring process. The law is still struggling to keep up with the rapidly evolving technology, experts told the commission. Still, two cases from EEOC's Office of Federal Operations offer insight into the complex legal issues surrounding just one errant tweet or ill-conceived Facebook post.

All of a sudden, things are looking up. The IRS has canceled at least one planned furlough day and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has scrubbed round two of its tough furlough policy. So what's not to like? Some feds say the reason the silver lining is so bright is that it is framed by a very large, very dark cloud, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.

Thousands of federal employees at four separate government agencies are required to take an unpaid furlough day July 5. Meanwhile, employees at two government agencies could see a diminished impact of furloughs.
