USA: Disability discrimination rises in the US

Posted 30/1-10 at 11.08

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has announced that 93,277 workplace discrimination charges were filed during Fiscal Year (FY) 2009, the second highest level ever. Of these, 21,451 were cases involving disability discrimination. This represented a 10% increase compared to the previous year.

The reason for the near record levels of discrimination charges remains unclear, but may be due to stepped up enforcement under the present administration.
