    • Abstract:
      BACKGROUND: The National EEOC ADA Research Project (NEARP) is an exhaustive data-mining effort that relies upon the master database used by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to track investigations of workplace discrimination. NEARP investigators seek to develop disability or industry-specific profiles of employment discrimination, explore the contentious issues involved in workplace discrimination, document the interface of disability with other demographics, evaluate extant theories of stigma, and predict EEOC investigatory outcomes. OBJECTIVE: The salient features of the NEARP database are described which themselves reveal new insights into the nature and scope of disability discrimination. METHODS: This is a review article. Abridgment and replication of tables from the NEARP codebook are given along with a description of basic findings from previously published NEARP studies. RESULTS: Summary statistics of a descriptive nature are given to illustrate the basic nature and scope of discrimination including Charging Party and Employer Characteristics, discriminatory Issues or personnel actions, and the types of Outcomes which document case closures and their trends. CONCLUSIONS: NEARP is a research collaborative to which employment and disability researchers are invited. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
