The EEOC announced yesterday that President Donald Trump has named Commissioner Victoria A. Lipnic as Acting Chair of EEOC. She replaces Jenny R. Yang who continues to serve as a Commissioner.
Meanwhile, last week the EEOC released detailed breakdowns of the 91,503 charges of workplace discrimination it received in fiscal year 2016. Religious discrimination was charged in 4.2% of the complaints. This year for the first time the EEOC included separate data for LGBT-based sex discrimination charges.
