Resolutions of ADA Title I Cases Involving People Who Are Visually Impaired: A Comparative Analysis
Unger, Darlene D.; Rumrill, Phillip D., Jr.; Hennessey, Mary L.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v99 n8 p453-463 Aug 2005
A comparison of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title I case resolutions by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) involving people who are visually impaired with those involving all other people with disabilities between 1993 and 2002 revealed that people who are visually impaired are more likely than are other complainants to receive settlement benefits from their employers, to withdraw their complaints after they receive benefits without intercession from the EEOC, and to receive administrative closures. In addition, they are less likely than other complainants to have charges resolved by the issuance of a right-to-sue letter from the EEOC and to receive other closures.
