General Attitudes Towards Labor & Employment

DecisionQuest’s National Juror Attitudes Survey Report: Labor & Employment is designed to provide litigators and their clients with insight and analysis about jurors and their opinions of discrimination and other key labor and employment issues.

The data we present tells a story of employers remaining at a distinct disadvantage in the courtroom, with major differences of opinion by jurors’ age, gender and ethnicity. And therein lies the opportunity at trial: litigators who collect data, make decisions empirically and build a case accordingly have a much better chance of winning over the jury.
