2009 Stats on Delaware Charges of Discrimination

Delaware Department of Labor (DDOL), has published its yearly statistics for FY2009 relating to the charges of discrimination filed with its Office of Anti-Discrimination.  Here are some highlights:Slide1


It may not come as a surprise that the most-often filed charge was a retaliation charge, making up just over 70% of all charges filed.  Where a charge alleges more than one basis, each basis was counted separately, which explains why the total is higher than 100%.  It also indicates that retaliation is very often added as a second basis to a charge that alleges other types of discrimination. Slide2


Again, not surprisingly, DDOL had a very busy year, with intakes at a five-year high.
