EEOC Update

The EEOC recently released the 2019 fiscal year enforcement and litigation data. The comprehensive data demonstrates that in 2019 employees filed historically fewer discriminatory charges with the EEOC.  Further, in 2019 the agency received 7,515 sexual harassment charges, a decrease of 1.2 percent from 2018.  Despite the decrease in charges being filed with the EEOC, the agency was able to recover a decade-high of 68 million dollars for employees alleging sexual harassment. In total, the agency took in 72,675 charges of employment discrimination. Of those charges, retaliation continued to be the most frequently filed charge, followed by disability, race and sex discrimination. Of that number, Ohio employees filed 2,392 charges with the EEOC, which accounts for 3.3 percent of the total charges throughout 2019.
