EEOC: Americans with Disabilities Act Charges for FY 1997- FY 2014

disability-discrimination_eeocThe following chart represents the total number of charges filed and resolved under the ADA.

Receipts include all charges filed under the ADA and those filed concurrently under Title VII, EPA, and ADEA. Therefore, the sum of receipts for all statutes will exceed total charges received.
