Workplace discrimination is illegal, yet it persists. Here's why

In late 2006, Law and 18 of his fellow black coworkers sought relief through the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the agency created to investigate workers’ complaints of job discrimination. A year later, their case still not resolved, they gave up waiting on the EEOC for help.

That’s how it often goes. Each year, the EEOC and its state and local partner agencies close more than 100,000 cases — but workers receive some form of assistance, such as money or a change in work conditions, only 18 percent of the time. Employees seeking help are even less likely to get it now than when Law went to the agency.
