“During an EEOC investigation, can my employer interrogate me?”

This is my question: I filed a claim of age discrimination with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) against my employer. My employer has been notified, and now Human Resources wants to interview me about the EEOC Complaint I filed. Isn’t the employer supposed to rely on the EEOC to do the investigating? Can I refuse to participate in the interview with HR, and ask my employer to contact the EEOC instead?
