End-to-End ADA Solutions.
What is ADA?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in the activities of places of public accommodations. These are generally businesses that are open to the public and that fall into one of 12 categories listed in the ADA, such as restaurants, movie theaters, schools, day care facilities, recreation facilities, and medical offices. The ADA also requires newly constructed or altered (renovated) places of public accommodation comply with the ADA Standards.
Over the past several years, the commercial and retail industries have seen a significant rise in litigation resulting from non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which has resulted in a significant increase in legal costs and financial penalties. Legal actions arising from ADA non-compliance increased 63% from 2013 to 2014, and increased another 8% from 2014 to 2015. Much of the non-compliance is a result of a lack of understanding of the complex and often confusing rules as outlined in the ADA. The continued increase in legal actions suggests that the problems are not going away. Companies are better suited to “pro-actively” identify any ADA non-compliance on their sites, and make the necessary corrections to achieve compliance.
