If you happened to notice that the EEOC recently filed a lawsuit against an employer you recognize (or even, heaven forbid, against your company), do not be surprised. The EEOC filed nearly 200 lawsuits during August and September 2011, the last two months of its fiscal year. Considering the EEOC filed approximately 250 lawsuits during the entire prior fiscal year, this volume of lawsuits filed in the past eight weeks is remarkable.
