If you’re wondering how the number (and type) of employee discrimination charges in your state compares to the rest of the country, you can now analyze those statistics for the first time in a new database made public this week by the EEOC.
The private-sector workplace discrimination charge data is broken down by type of discrimination alleged, plus the percentage of total state and national charges. It displays stats for fiscal years 2009 to 2011. The EEOC will update the state data when new charge statistics are available each fiscal year.
To find your state's data, select it from the drop-down menu at the EEOC's new database at:
- Allstate hands over $4.5 million to settle age bias claims
- Most 2013 EEOC charges were filed by employees in 10 states
- New sex discrimination rules proposed for federal contractors
- Keep applications clean; jotting notes may trigger hiring-bias claims
- Strive for harmony, plan for a lawsuit: Document every complaint
