The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
The following chart represents the total number of charge receipts filed and resolved under the ADEA.
Receipts include all charges filed under the ADEA as well as those filed concurrently under Title VII, ADA, and/or EPA. Therefore, the sum of receipts for all statutes will exceed total charges received.
The data are compiled by the Office of Research, Information, and Planning from EEOC's Charge Data System - quarterly reconciled Data Summary Reports.
|FY 1992||FY 1993||FY 1994||FY 1995||FY 1996|
|Resolutions By Type|
|No Reasonable Cause||12,075||11,481||6,872||8,309||11,081|
|Monetary Benefits (Millions)*||$57.3||$40.7||$42.3||$29.4||$31.5|
* Does not include monetary benefits obtained through litigation.
The total of individual percentages may not always sum to 100% due to rounding.
EEOC total workload includes charges carried over from previous fiscal years, new charge receipts and charges transferred to EEOC from Fair Employment Practice Agencies (FEPAs). Resolution of charges each year may therefore exceed receipts for that year because workload being resolved is drawn from a combination of pending, new receipts and FEPA transfer charges rather than from new charges only.
