In Fiscal Year 2020, The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission received 67,448 discrimination cases. Think about it, we have 200 work days a year – so this equates to over 337 a day and 42 every hour.
Sheer numbers indicate that it’s just a matter of time before a discrimination charge crosses your desk.

Your first reaction to receiving a charge of discrimination follows the stages of grief – shock, denial, anger, … some get depressed because they think they may get in trouble. Then reality sets in and they reach the acceptance and action stages.
