Posted on November 27, 2017 in Employee Rights, Employment Law

Lebau & Neuworth attorneys were fortunate enough to have represented three of the persons for whom the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)  filed lawsuits in 2017. In those lawsuits, we successfully represented our clients in negotiating private settlement agreements.

The EEOC recently announced its overall 2017 results; among them were the following:


  • The EEOC recovered approximately $484 million discrimination, $355.6 million through mediation, conciliation and other administrative enforcement, and $42.4 million in monetary relief for charging parties through litigation.
  • The EEOC also secured $86 million in monetary relief for federal employees and applicants.
  • The EEOC filed 184 merits lawsuits, including 124 suits on behalf of individuals, 30 non-systemic suits with multiple victims, and 30 systemic suits. This is more than double the number of suits filed in fiscal year 2016.

The EEOC also reduced its backlog of Charges of Discrimination.  The EEOC resolved 99,109 charges and reduced the charge workload by 16.2 percent to 61,621, the lowest level of inventory in 10 years.
