October 23, 2017

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, 2,945 charges were filed in Virginia in fiscal year 2016. Of those, 1,069 charges were on the basis of race, and 881 on sex. That number doesn’t reflect the volume of sexual harassment and assault cases that don’t go reported, or aren’t reported to the EEOC. People often opt to not prosecute, said Tom Spiggle, owner of Spiggle Law Firm, which prosecutes workplace sexual harassment cases in Virginia. He said his firm’s taken on about 30 cases this year.
