The recent report shows that EEOC litigators filed 66 lawsuits alleging workplace harassment in fiscal year (FY) 2018, which is more than a 50 percent increase over the previous year. The number of sexual harassment charges filed with the agency also increased by more than 12 percent during the same period.
