    • Definition : The Equal Employment Rights are laws passed by Congress that protect employees from discrimination in the work place.

    • Statistics show that up until the year 2000, there was a large decrease in reasonable causes of firing, but after the year 2000, there is an almost constant rise in settlements.
    • In addition, the monetary benefits from such lawsuits has increased to $72.1 million in 2009.
  • 5. Why was the Equal Employment Act passed?
    • Many people, who are in poverty, have been denied a job because of discrimination.
    • The EEA helped people stay out of jail because if they had a job, they would less likely be committing crimes.
  • 6. Do we need more laws like the Equal Employment Acts?
    • Yes, we need more laws because after the year 2000, there was a huge drop in people being reasonably fired.
    • Also, there are still many cases where there is discrimination in the work place, which can result in someone not having a job.
