Law360, New York (February 14, 2013, 2:05 PM EST) -- During fiscal year 2012, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's administrative enforcement activities have secured more than $365.4 million. According to its own estimates, this is the highest level of monetary relief the agency recovered through the administrative process and $700,000 more than it recovered in fiscal year 2011.
As the agency strives to recover increasingly larger monetary relief from employers, it does so by intensifying its pursuit of systemic cases. These cases often arise out of individual charges of alleged discrimination.
