HR Fact Friday: Discrimination / Retaliation Claims Against Employers Skyrocket

A hundred thousand new charges were filed in the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) fiscal year ending 2011. This is the second straight year a new record was set in the total number of new charges. Here are the most commonly-filed claims: (1) retaliation; (2) race bias; (3) sex discrimination / harassment; (4) disability bias; (5) age bias. The EEOC recovered $455 million from employers in 2011. Case in point…a large national soft drink company recently agreed to pay $3.1 million to settle race discrimination claims related to background check administration.
