Retaliation Claims Also on Rise
A Retaliation claim under arises when an employer demotes, fails to promote, suspends or fires and employee who has made a claim of discrimination/hostile work environment based upon age, race, sex, national origin, religion or disability (or when a complaint of sexual harassment is made). In 1997, roughly 35,000 Retaliation claims were filed. In 2011, that number was roughly 67,000.
To me, this suggests that more people are reporting claims of discrimination/hostile work environment to management.
