Claims of workplace discrimination are at an all time high. In Fiscal Year 2011 the EEOC received a record 99,947 charges of employment discrimination and obtained $455.6 million in relief through its administrative program and litigation. Although the number of discrimination charges dropped in 2014, that decline has been attributed to the governmental shutdown in October, 2013. Florida had the 2nd largest number of charges (7,528) falling slightly behind Texas (8,035). Due to these statistics, the need to resolve workplace disputes and claims of employment discrimination continues to be in great demand, and of great concern to both employers and employees. The skills of an effective mediator who is knowledgeable about employment-related issues and the pertinent applicable laws can aid in the management and decline of these disputes and at the same time afford mediators an opportunity to utilize their skills in the ever growing field of Employment Mediation.
