Retaliation tops the charts

Nora Akins

Retaliation is the most frequent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charge. The EEOC’s fiscal year is Oct. 1, 2015, to Sept. 30, 2016. The latest numbers will be available in six to eight weeks.

It is a safe bet that it will top the charts again this year. Retaliation has been the leading charge since 2009. It tied race discrimination in 2008 and has increased its lead ever since. The EEOC has released Enforcement Guidance on Retaliation and Related Issues which is likely to increase these charges.
