Overview of This Information Collection
1. Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently approved collection.
2. The Title of the Form/Collection: Americans with Disabilities Act Discrimination Complaint Form.
3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: No form number. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Disability Rights Section in the Civil Rights Division.
4. Affected public who will be asked to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Individuals alleging discrimination by public entities based on disability. Under title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, an individual who believes that he or she has been subjected to discrimination on the basis of disability by a public entity may, by himself or herself or by an authorized representative, file a complaint. Any Federal agency that receives a complaint of discrimination by a public entity is required to review the complaint to determine whether it has jurisdiction under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. If the agency does not have jurisdiction, it must determine whether it is the designated agency responsible for complaints filed against that public entity. If the agency does not have jurisdiction under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and is not the designated agency, it must refer the complaint to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice then must refer the complaint to the appropriate agency.
5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An estimated 9,100 respondents per year at 0.50 hours per complaint form.
6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 4550 hours. It is estimated that respondents will take 0.50 hour to complete the questionnaire. The burden hours for collecting respondent data sum to 4550 hours (9100 respondents × 0.50 hours = 4550 hours).
