This brief presents some descriptive information about charges filed under the ADA that cite harassment and a summary of a qualitative analysis of case notes from a subset of the charge data. According to the EEOC, discriminatory behavior that qualifies as harassment under the ADA is unwelcome conduct based on disability, “Where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive”.
