Californians trail nation in per capita EEOC charges

by on

Recent EEOC data don’t back up ­Cali­­fornia’s reputation as a lawsuit-happy state. They show that Califor­­nians proportionately file fewer EEOC complaints than other Americans.

California represents 12.1% of the U.S. population, but Californians filed just 7.2% of EEOC charges in fiscal year 2011. (Of course, that may be because California makes it so easy to sue for discrimination and retaliation under state law.)

Total EEOC discrimination charges originating in the Golden State changed little from 2010 to 2011—an increase of less than 1%—following a 7.62% jump from 2009 to 2010. More charges alleged retaliation (3,195 in all) than any particular form of discrimination. The largest single discrimination category was race discrimination, racking up 2,372 charges, followed by disability discrimination (2,110) and sex discrimination (1,925).
