4 Reasons Why Employment Discrimination Cases Are Rising

3 hours ago

1. Increased Awareness. If you don’t know something is illegal, you won’t file a legal complaint about it. The original discrimination laws were passed more than 50 years ago, and yet not everyone knows their rights even today.
2. Increased Coverage. This goes along with increased awareness. As people see reports of discrimination in the news, they realize that they are not alone, and there is something they can do about it.
3. Social Media. In the past, you could complain to a few friends, complain to HR, and maybe hire a lawyer, and that was it. Today, if you can get a tweet or a Facebook post to go viral, you have a huge audience.
4. Employer Panic. Employers are reading the same headlines and attending the same training classes that employees do. The number one reason for a discrimination lawsuit in 2019 as cited earlier, was “retaliation.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does an employment discrimination lawsuit cost?

These costs generally run at least $10,000, and can be considerably more. More commonly than pure contingency, an attorney may handle your employment discrimination lawsuit on a partial contingency basis, requiring you to pay specific fees and expenses whether you win or lose the case.

Who is in charge of discrimination in California?

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces most federal employment discrimination laws. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) is the state agency that handles most employment discriminations. However, in many cases, California law offers broader protections for anti-discrimination cases than federal law.

How does an employment discrimination case take from?

Almost all federal employment discrimination cases require filing a charge with the EEOC, initially, before a case can be adjudicated in a court of law. The one exception is the Equal Pay Act (EPA), a law which prohibits different payment and wages for men and women who work in the same workplace performing equal work.

Which is easier for an employer to discriminate against?

State and local laws will never be “easier” on a discriminating employer than federal (Title VII) laws. On the other hand, many states have more robust employment discrimination laws, covering more areas of discrimination than are available through the EEOC.
