EEOC v. Randstad, 11-1759

District court's denial of a request by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) seeking judicial enforcement of its subpoena against a defendant, a provider of temporary staffing services, arising from a discrimination charge brought by defendant's former employee, is reversed and remanded where: 1) the EEOC had jurisdiction under Title VII and the ADA to seek enforcement of the administrative subpoena; 2) all of the EEOC's requested materials fall within the broad definition of relevance application to EEOC administrative subpoenas; and 3) the evidence proffered by the defendant was insufficient as a matter of law to support a finding that the costs of compliance rise to the level of an undue burden.
