Using “EEOC Role-Playing” for Human Resource (HR) and Management Education

In this session, participants will learn about the presenters’ experience using a mock-EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) investigation to teach students about U.S. equal employment opportunity law. Using a real, highly publicized religious discrimination case, students are assigned various roles relevant to the EEOC complaint process. Students role-playing a job applicant and an employer participate in simulated “oral arguments”. These arguments are used by other students, role-playing EEOC investigators, to determine if the charges have merit. The presenters will discuss both the benefits and challenges of this approach. Ways of modifying the activity to accomplish other objectives, and to apply it to the legal systems of other countries, will be discussed.
