EEOC Documents 2009 Payouts for Disability Discrimination

Employees suffering from back troubles or depression, or who were regarded as disabled by their employers, got the largest total payouts in 2009 for disability discrimination charges filed to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

In its annual report to Congress, the EEOC reported that in fiscal year 2009 it filed 21,451 charges of disability discrimination, a 10 percent jump from the year before.
