Texas workers who complained about workplace sexual harassment, religious intolerance, and age and race discrimination collected $2.7 million more in FY 2009 than they did in 2008.
According to the EEOC, the top complaint in Texas was sexual discrimination, followed by race, age and disability. Total compensation amounted to $28.9 million in 2009.
That’s a lot of money, but the number of complaints actually fell a little last year. In 2009, a total of 8,753 Texas workers filed EEOC complaints, compared to 8,776 in 2008.
Specifically, race-related complaints dropped from 2,987 to 2,817. Sex-based complaints decreased from 2,878 to 2,841. Retaliation complaints increased from 3,317 to 3,439. National-origin complaints increased slightly from 1,382 to 1,398. Religious-based complaints increased from 256 to 269.
