Private sector bias charges hit all-time high
For the second year in a row, despite a record number of receipts, the commission resolved more charges than it took in with 112,499 resolutions (7,500 more resolutions than FY 2010 - an increase of 7 percent) - leaving 78,136 pending charges, a 10 percent decrease in its inventory, the first year the agency has seen a reduction since 2002. The commission's mediation program also reached record levels, both in the number of resolutions - 9,831 - which is 5 percent more than in FY 2010 (9,362), and benefits - $170,053,021 - $29 million more than FY 2010.
EEOC filed 300 lawsuits and its litigation efforts resulted in $91 million of relief, representing the third year in a row that the relief obtained was greater than in the preceding year.
