EEOC: Sexual Harassment Charges Jumped By 12 Percent In FY 2018

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's fiscal year 2018 closed just a few days before the anniversary of the first stories about media mogul Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct. Outrage against Weinstein and others in Hollywood began a national reckoning in which powerful men in media, politics, journalism and other fields have been publicly accused of sexual harassment, assault and misconduct.

New guidance on retaliation will impact employees and employers

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), states that retaliation is far and away the most common employment claim for employees in the private and public sectors, making up nearly half of all cases. Recently the EEOC released new guidance on retaliation claims, the first such guidance in years. Understanding how this guidance applies to the workplace is critical for all businesses, as well as employers who face retaliation in the workplace.

Maryland employee's discrimination lawsuit ends in settlement

A national drug store chain has agreed to a $250,000 settlement with a former employee who claims that he was fired because of his disability.

Virginia healthcare center faces sexual harassment lawsuit

Sexual harassment cases do not always stem from a supervisor harassing an employee. Sometimes, a worker is being harassed by a co-worker, and his or her supervisor is doing little to stop it. In other cases, a worker might even experience sexual harassment from someone who is not a part of the place of employment--such as a customer, client or patient that is within the workplace. In these cases, the supervisor or employer is still obligated by law to take actions to stop the sexual harassment once alerted.
