Systemic Discrimination

Systemic Discrimination

Definition

Systemic Discrimination — a type of discrimination claim brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against an employer, in which the EEOC alleges that more than 20 individuals were victims of discrimination by that employer. Such claims are, of course, much more costly to defend and settle than those in which the EEOC alleges that an employer discriminated against a single employee (or against a group of fewer than 20 employees).
