The EEOC describes the type of relief it may order

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released an article that described which types of relief it can provide for victims of federal workplace discrimination. The EEOC is responsible for handling discrimination claims in New Jersey and around the country. When they order relief, their goal is to give the victims compensation that makes them whole or as close as possible to whole.

According to anti-discrimination laws, the EEOC is allowed to provide both financial and equitable relief for discrimination victims. They can order back pay and compensatory damages as well as training, reinstatement, and even appointment to a new position. Relief is ordered on a case-by-case basis according to the circumstances of the discriminatory action. Victims can also be compensated for attorney's fees and costs.

When the EEOC discovers discriminatory practices at an agency, they can order preventative actions to help solve the problem. An example of this action is forcing the agency to notify all the employees that discrimination took place and that employees have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination. They can also be forced to provide training for any management officials involved in previous discriminatory acts.

Victims of workplace discrimination at either the public or private level often incur severe financial and emotional harm. They should know that employers are prohibited by law from terminating or otherwise retaliating against people who file claims either through workplace channels or with the EEOC or applicable state agency. People who are in this type of a situation might find it advisable to discuss their situation with an employment law attorney.
