Tracking EEOC Discrimination Charges: Retaliation Leads the List

Enforcement and litigation data from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for fiscal 2014 shows that, on a percentage basis, charges alleging retaliation reached a record high of 42.8 percent of all charges. The percentage of charges alleging race discrimination, the second most common allegation, remained steady at roughly 35 percent. The EEOC obtained $296.1 million in total monetary relief in fiscal 2014 through its pre-litigation enforcement program.
