More EEOC charges originated in Texas in fiscal year 2014 than any other state. Texas employers faced 8,035 charges in FY14—9.1% of all charges filed nationwide.

The EEOC’s recently released FY14 enforcement and litigation statistics report showed that the commission received 88,778 charges in all. That’s about a 5% reduction from FY13. For the sixth year in a row, retaliation-based charges were the most common.

Race discrimination, sex discrimination and disability discrimination charges rounded out the top four in terms of prevalence, as they did in FY13.
