Employment related litigation is on the rise.  More and more claims are being filed and costs are increasing.  According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), fiscal year 2010 witnessed the record-breaking filing of 99,922 discrimination charges.  This number represented the highest single-year number of charges in the agency’s 45-year history.  To minimize potential exposure, every law enforcement agency should understand and practice risk management.  An essential component of risk management is to stay current with legal landmines in a variety of employment areas.
