While I have my own, with this report, you REALLY have to wonder what the hell is going on in todays workplace and its incivility between its management and its worker bees. There is no loyalty from the employer anymore and according to these millennials, that don't stay but a few years and companies complain about, there is no loyalty on their part either. The only presumable loyalty left is management to other management and HR to other HR.

But corporate America, the greedy, don't seem to care anymore about how badly they treat their employees (aka expenses, not assets). I think this is being reflected in the EEOC reporting, EEOC is soon going to make retaliation even easier for the worker bee against what appears to be tremendous amount of back biting in todays workforce. I am sure todays political climate and incivility is spilling over into the workforce too.






Retaliation again tops the list of charges filed with the EEOC February 12, 2016

It’s apparently a lot easier to prove a retaliation charge than a workplace bias or harassment claim. That’s probably why retaliation remains the No. 1 complaint filed with the EEOC.

The agency released detailed breakdowns of the 89,385 charges of workplace discrimination that the agency received in fiscal year 2015. Retaliation charges increased by nearly 5% and continue to be the leading concern raised by workers across the country.

Disability charges increased by 6% from last year and are the third largest category of charges filed.

The fiscal year ran from Oct. 1, 2014, to Sept. 30, 2015. The year-end data shows that retaliation again was the most frequently filed charge of discrimination, with 39,757 charges, making up 45% of all private sector charges filed with EEOC.

And the feds have taken notice of the trend. The EEOC is currently seeking public input on its proposed update of enforcement guidance addressing retaliation and related issues as part of its ongoing enforcement efforts.

EEOC resolved 92,641 charges in FY 2015, and secured more than $525 million for victims of discrimination in private sector and state and local government workplaces through voluntary resolutions and litigation.

The charge numbers breakdown:
◾Retaliation: 39,757 (44.5% of all charges filed)
◾Race: 31,027 (34.7%)
◾Disability: 26,968 (30.2%)
◾Sex: 26,396 (29.5%)
◾Age: 20,144 (22.5%)
◾National Origin: 9,438 (10.6%)
◾Religion: 3,502 (3.9%)
◾Color: 2,833 (3.2%)
◾Equal Pay Act: 973 (1.1%) , and
◾Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act: 257 (0.3%).

(Percentages add up to more than 100 because some charges allege multiple violations.)
