Downward Trend for Employment Discrimination Suits
By Sherry Karabin

With so much legal news focusing on employment-related discrimination lawsuits, it might appear that such claims are going up. But, according to Patrick Dorrian on Bloomberg BNA’s Labor and Employment Blog, the number of new federal court filings charging these violations actually dipped to less than 1,000 a month for the first two months of the year—for the first time since 2006. He cites a recent report by Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a nonpartisan research organization associated with Syracuse University, which shows federal courts clocking 838 new employment civil filings during January and 862 filings in February.
