Learn about characteristics of employment discrimination charges filed under the ADA

 This new online tool provides data tables and visualizations of ADA employment discrimination charges filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as well as state and local Fair Employment Practice Agencies.

This tool is designed to be used by anyone who would like to learn more about disability discrimination charges in their state or region. The data available on the site includes state level information on:

·        ADA charges rates (ADA charge per 10,000 individuals with a disability in the labor force)

·        The percent of ADA charges citing common bases (e.g., diabetes, depression)

·        The percent of ADA charges citing common issues (e.g., discharge, reasonable accommodation)

Users can access all data through accessible tables as well as select and compare states of interest using interactive data visualizations.

This presentation will provide some background on the EEOC charge data and the development of this online tool as well as show users how to access and use this tool.
