WORKPLACE RETALIATION AGAIN ON THE RISE

EEOC Releases Report on Complaints Filed 2017

●●●

Vital Management Training Available with Upcoming Feb. 23 Seminar

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced the number of workplace discrimination charges filed nationwide during fiscal year 2017 (October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017).

Of the 84,254 workplace discrimination charges submitted to the agency during that time, retaliation once again topped the list, totaling 41,097 charges, followed by race, disability, sex and age-based complaints.

The EEOC’s legal staff filed 184 new lawsuits last year and secured $398 million for claimants, including $46.3 million for sexual harassment victims.

Workforce education for the prevention of unlawful practices is essential for any business. While regular “zero-tolerance” sexual harassment training and well-worded anti-discrimination, harassment and retaliation policies are sound practices, employers should not stop there.  To promote and maintain a professional and productive work environment, managers and workers alike should receive training on all forms of discrimination, harassment and retaliation, including sex/gender, age, religion, sexual preference, national origin, and disability, to name a few.

Tim Bowles’ upcoming February 23 annual employment law seminar is one such training and education opportunity for business owners and managers. From his decades of experience, Tim’s presentation includes important refreshers and updates on the federal and state protections from workplace discrimination, harassment and retaliation.
