EEOC Reports Workplace Discrimination Charges at All Time High

/cdklawyers.com// 01/24/2011

The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) recently announced that more private sector workplace discrimination charges had been filed with the federal agency in fiscal year 2010 than ever before.  The statement, released on January 11, 2011, is available here: http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/release/1-11-11.cfm

The EEOC enforces federal laws that prohibit employment discrimination, harassment and retaliation, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (“GINA”).  In fiscal year 2010, a record 99,922 charges were filed nationwide, and all major categories of charge filings in the private sector (which includes charges filed against state and local governments) increased. Notably, for the first time since the federal agency became operational in 1965, retaliation under all statutes surpassed race as the most frequently filed charge.  Fiscal year 2010 also marked the first year that the EEOC enforced GINA; the agency received 201 charges under that statute.
