Carlton Fields labor and employment attorney Rae Vann was quoted in a Bloomberg Law Labor & Employment Report article about the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) recent proposed revamp of its own leadership panel.

The three nominees’ resumes have been thoroughly reviewed, with several parties sounding off on potential commissioners’ experience and expertise.
