EEOC Releases 2017 Enforcement and Litigation Data

EEOC-2017-workplace-discrimination

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing various federal equal employment opportunity laws. The EEOC annually releases fiscal year enforcement and litigation data to keep the public apprised of its efforts and results. The most recent release shows that the EEOC received 84,254 individual charges of workplace discrimination in FY 2017.

The good news is that this is lower than the number of charges filed in fiscal years 2016 (91,503), 2015 (89,385) and 2014 (88,778). The bad news is that 69,583 charges were closed because there was no reasonable cause to believe that discrimination occurred based upon evidence obtained in investigation.
