The EEOC has reported that in the last fiscal year employers paid $100 million to settle discrimination charges filed with the EEOC. The largest payout — over 1/3 – was for charges arising under the ADA.

The EEOC also reported that the two most frequent charges were filed under the ADA and the ADEA. Additionally, during the first year of the existence of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (“GINA”), there were 245 charges filed, none of which has (as of yet) gone to court.
