A Business Primer on Disability Access Laws: Preventive Tools and Defense Strategies
Businesses continue to be plagued by litigation under the Americans with Disabilities, Title III (ADA) over alleged access barriers. Lawsuits against hotels and retailers, among other public accommodations, appear to be on the rise with a disproportionate share in California. This webinar will provide an overview of ADA, Title III standards as they apply to construction existing before the enactment of the ADA in 1992 as well as to subsequent new construction and alterations. The webinar will also address measures that can be taken to prevent ADA lawsuits and strategies for successfully defending these lawsuits when they arise. Special focus will be place on trends including the recent proliferation of lawsuits over website accessibility and auxiliary aids for hearing impaired.
