Subseries 3. EEOC and PHRC

Scope and Content Notes:

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) are two organizations that work to eliminate discrimination based on sex, color, race, or religion. When a person has a complaint toward an employer or other individual, these organizations work to investigate the charge. If it is determined that discrimination did, in fact, occur, it is the responsibility of these associations to enforce antidiscrimination laws. While the EEOC works on the federal level, complaints must be reviewed by local organizations before they can legally conduct their own investigations. In the early 1970s, NOW accused PHRC of improperly handling investigations, encouraging complainants to accept lower results, and discriminating against its own employees. As a result of this accusation, an appeal to investigate PHRC was presented to Governor Thornburgh. This subseries includes general information, complaints, and information relating to the investigation of PHRC.
