Reasonable efforts is often defined as a standard of care relating to confidential information that is no less rigorous than that which the recipient uses to keep its own similar information secure; and to ensure that anyone to whom the information is disclosed further abides by obligations restricting use, restricting disclosure, and ensuring security at least as protective as the agreement; and types of permissible disclosure - such as those required by law or court order . The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is an independent federal agency that enforces laws against workplace discrimination. The EEOC investigates discrimination complaints based on an individual's race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability and retaliation for reporting and/or opposing a discriminatory practice. It is empowered to file discrimination suits against employers on behalf of alleged victims and to adjudicate claims of discrimination brought against federal agencies.

The EEOC was established on July 2, 1965; its mandate is specified under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), [5] the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. All Commission seats and the post of general counsel to the commission are filled by the President of the U.S. subject to confirmation by the Senate. [6] Stuart J. Ishimaru, a Commissioner who was Senate- confirmed in 2003 and 2006, [7] has been serving as Acting Chair of the Commission since January 20, 2009. In July 2009, President Barack Obama chose Jacqueline Berrien to Chair the Commission, but the Senate has yet to vote on her nomination. [8] In September 2009, Obama chose Chai Feldblum to fill another vacant seat, [9] and her nomination is also awaiting a vote on the Senate floor. Feldblum has been reported by Fox News to be controversial among conservatives and certain religious groups because of her prior activism on gay rights. [10] As of February 2010, three of the five Commission posts and the general counsel position remain unfilled. [2] Quid pro quo (From the Latin meaning "something for something") [1] indicates a more-or-less equal exchange or substitution of goods or services. English speakers often use the term to mean "a favor for a favor" and the phrases with almost identical meaning include: "what for what," "give and take," "tit for tat", "this for that", and "you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours".

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
