Jurisdictional Prerequisites to Court Action Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

The fact that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's conciliation record is less than perfect does not, the author asserts, permit the courts to allow a grievant to bypass the agency in seeking relief. An opposite holding would, he states: (1) negate Congressional intent (firmly established in case law) in drafting Title VII; (2) overburden already busy courts; and (3) ignore the significant amount of instances where the EEOC was successful. If Title VII, then, is to be altered--procedurally or otherwise--the courts must wait for word from Congress.
