The EEOC #’s by State – How Does Your State Look?

Filed under: General HR Buzz12:54 pm

The 2012 numbers for EEOC lawsuits are out, indicating an ever-so-slightly downward movement but still the second most ever.  I read the numbers with interest which indicate retaliation claims continuing to be the most filed claim with the EEOC, accounting for 38.1% of all private sector charges.  The runner-ups include race (33.7%), sex (30.5%), disability (26.5%), and age (23.0%).

So how does this compare to your state’s totals?  The EEOC now makes it possible for you to check your state’s information for fiscal years 2009-2012.  This data provides a look at EEOC charge receipts, broken down by the basis of discrimination, as well as the percent of total state and national charges so you get an idea of how much your state is contributing to those.

To access this data, go to http://www1.eeoc.gov/eeoc/statistics/enforcement/charges_by_state.cfm.  Future blogs will focus on what contributes to each of the categories, including retaliation charges, so stay tuned!
