The EEOC just announced an Online Charge Status System by which charging parties can access up-to-date status on their charges, and employers will have “a portal … to receive and upload documents and communicate with EEOC.”

“The Online Charge Status System is available for charges filed on or after September 2, 2015. It is not available for charges filed prior to this date or for charges filed with EEOC’s state and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies. The system can be accessed at: http://www.eeoc.gov/employees/charge_status.cfm or by selecting the “Check the Status of a Charge” button on www.eeoc.gov.”
