New chart: EEOC Discrimination Charge Data for FY1997-2019

The EEOC recently released its charge statistics for fiscal year 2019. As I do every year, I updated my chart to visually depict the charge data:


A few observations:

  • Charges are down across all of the major categories for the third straight year;
  • GINA continues to be a non-factor (for number of charges) with only 209 last year; 
  • Equal Pay Act claims have seen a modest increase the past two years;
  • Long-term, you see a spike around the 2008 financial crisis (of course, one would expect a drastic increase in adverse employment actions to lead to an increase in charges), and then a fairly stead decline.
