EEOC Reports Job Bias Charges Hit Record High of Nearly 100,000 in Fiscal Year 2010

For those fortunate enough to have jobs in this economy, the workplace presents many challenges.  Many argue that the laws that protect employees have been expanded to a point where anyone and everyone files charges.  I believe that employees should be informed of their rights and exercise them, when needed.  However, organizations should develop workplace climates that allow employees to engage in “skip level” meetings to seek resolution to their issues and concerns.  Resources should be dedicated to developing credible internal workplace conflict programs and allow employees to address issues without going throught the EEO process.  Work environments that do not promote transparency and two-way communication can expect an increase in complaints.  In addition, if “bad actors” are not held accountable, problems will persist as others will have no incentive to do better.
