The deferral requirements of the equal employment provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act were intended to insure state participation in the enforcement of the Act and to lighten the caseload of the E.E.O.C. Their implementation, however, has raised numerous problems that have diminished the effectiveness of the Act. The author traces the history and purpose of these deferral requirements, discusses the problems they have created and suggests some possible solutions.
