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".
