According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), complaints of disability discrimination in the workplace rose by six percent from 2014 to 2015, a record high after two years of declines in the number of related claims. In 2015, over 6000 disability discrimination complaints were resolved favorably for claimants, and the EEOC obtained almost $129 million in damages for victims of disability-related discrimination in the workplace. Disability played a role in roughly one third of all discrimination claims in 2015.
