North Carolinians filed 15% more discrimination complaints in 2007 than they did in 2006, according to the director of the EEOC’s Charlotte office.
Reuben Daniels Jr., a North Carolina native who heads up EEOC enforcement in the state, said the office received nearly 1,900 complaints in fiscal year 2007, up from just 1,650 the year before and 1,625 in 2005.
Daniels said while race discrimination charges predominated, the fastest-growing kind of complaint involved national origin discrimination. He attributed that to the EEOC’s expanded outreach in the Hispanic community. He also pointed out that some complaints charged discrimination that favored Hispanics.
Daniels blamed the overall growth in complaints to a poor job market and several mass layoffs.
