The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced last week that workplace discrimination complaints remain at historic high levels, with the agency seeing 93,277 such complaints in fiscal year 2009 -- the second-highest level in its history. The year 2008 saw the most workplace discrimination complaints, but EEOC officials do not see in the decrease any sign of relief. Instead, the agency points to the bigger picture, noting that the late 1990s, for example, didn't average 80,000 such complaints annually.
