The EEOC just released its annual “Performance and Accountability Report” which “record[s] results in its enforcement efforts during fiscal year 2015, which ended Sept. 30.”
The EEOC stated that it “continued to implement its Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2012-2016, which the Office of Management and Budget authorized the Commission to extend through fiscal year 2018, and the related SEP.”
Highlights of the report include:
- 89,385 charges filed with the EEOC, and 92,641 charges resolved.
- More than $525 million recovered for victims of discrimination – $356.6 through mediation, conciliation, and settlements, and $65.3 through litigation.
- 142 lawsuits filed by the EEOC, which included “100 individual suits and 42 suits involving multiple victims or discriminatory policies (versus discriminatory treatment), of which 16 were systemic suits.”
- 268 “systemic” cases resolved before litigation and 26 such cases resolved through litigation.
There’s a lot more in the report. Interest stuff to read for those in the business.
