Moss K, Ullman MD, Swanson JW, Ranney LM and Burris SC. Prevalence and Outcomes of ADA Employment Discrimination Claims in the Federal Courts. Mental & Physical Disability Law Reporter. 2005;29:303.

The 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was expected to decrease discrimination against and to increase the well-being of people with disabilities. The tendency of court decisions to limit rights under the ADA has been widely reported, but there have been no large-scale studies of the enforcement of the Act. This paper reports the national prevalence and outcomes of ADA employment discrimination lawsuits filed in federal court in the decade after the ADA's passage.

Under the policy, charges are classified as one of three priority levels during or immediately after investigation. Only charges assigned a high priority receive a full investigation.
