These are scary trends for any employer. Over the past decade, more than 825,000 charges of job discrimination have been filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). There were almost 100,000 discrimination charges in 2012 alone and this number is expected to increase this year. One in four employers is a target for such a charge. The average EEO settlement claim is over $550,000 and these claims have been filed in every type of industry. With such high stakes, staying abreast of trends and legislation is an employer's best defense.

Managing and ultimately preventing these types of charges requires a detailed understanding of current and emerging legal issues. Register now for this nine-week eCourse on Federal discrimination law. This intensive eCourse is designed to provide a complete and up-to-date understanding of all relevant legislation through case law analysis, law review and case studies.

This is an essential program for any organization looking to limit exposure, reduce litigation risk, and succeed in today's challenging and complex workplace.
