Florida workers know their rights and don’t hesitate to complain to the EEOC.
Floridians filed 307 more discrimination complaints with the EEOC in fiscal year 2011 than they did in 2010. The 8,086 complaints represented 8.1% of all EEOC charges filed in 2011. Considering that Florida’s population represents only 6.01% of the nation’s, the number is disproportionately high.
The greatest number of Florida complaints—3,231 in all—alleged retaliation.
Florida filings rose in every discrimination category in 2011. The highest per capita filings were for national-origin discrimination—1,446, which constituted 12.2% of the national filings in that category. Color discrimination (9.4% of national charges) and Title VII retaliation (9.1%) were the second and third highest per capita filings, respectively.
