Overall, employment discrimination claims are falling. On the flipside, claims alleging retaliation against a worker reached an all-time high in 2014. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) noted that charges alleging retaliation reached 42.8 percent last year.

Below are the top 10 categories of charged filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission:

  • Retaliation
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Disability
  • Age
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Color
  • Equal Pay Act
  • Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act

In addition to the many claims filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, there is another telling statistic: the agency obtained more than $296 million in compensation through its enforcement program. Furthermore, this is monetary relief obtained before litigation.
