BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

EEOC funding would increase 10.6% under proposed 2023 budget


The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will have a 10.6% increase in funding under President Biden’s proposed 2023 budget, while it also plans to continue to increase the number of its employees.

The agency said in a statement Monday the increase to $464.65 million will allow it to continue rebuilding the agency’s capacity.

It said in fiscal year 2021, with the authorization of 450 hires, it ended the year with more than 2,100 employees, which compares with 1,939 in fiscal year 2020 and more than 3,300 in fiscal year 1980.

The agency said it expects to bring its staff level up to 2,300 in fiscal year 2022.

EEOC chair Charlotte A. Burrows said in the statement the proposed budget will help advance three initiatives started in 2021: the Hiring Initiative to Reimagine Equity, which aims to expand employment opportunities as the nation recovers from the pandemic; a joint anti-retaliation initiative with the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Labor Relations Board; and an initiative to ensure that employment-related artificial intelligence and algorithmic decision-making tools comply with federal civil rights laws.
