|Dallas Employment Attorney Matt Scott says Cash Crunch Impacts EEOC Case Filings|
|November 1, 2012 12:15 pm|
Dallas employment attorney Matt Scott says this year's 50 percent decrease in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission federal case filings stems from a cut to the agency's budget. "After the 2008 election, there was a commitment of energy and resources to staff up the EEOC, but, in 2010, the money wasn't there," says Scott, an attorney at Dallas-based Kendall Law Group. Scott adds that just because the EEOC has slowed down its actions against employers, the number of EEOC discrimination cases that employees file on their own remains roughly the same. Scott says he thinks the commission is now targeting companies to either send messages to their particular industries, or it is tackling cases that will likely result in sizeable, attention-grabbing awards.
