Why Should You Attend:

The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) was adopted in congress in 1990. This statute is a civil rights law with the purpose of making certain that disabled individuals have the same rights as able bodied individuals. The law is intended to prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Title II of the Act cover government facilities at the federal, state and local level and includes buildings such as train stations. Title III covers all commercial facilities such as offices, retail, malls, banks and basically every other facility that is available to the public. As a result of the ADA the U.S. Department of Justice issued the American with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (“ADAAG”) but much ambiguity still exists especially with regard to existing facilities. This webinar explores the scoping and some technical aspects of the Law with particular concentration on existing facilities and offers guidance on how owners, contractors, architects and operators of facilities available to the public can navigate the Law to minimize the likelihood of claims of non-compliance.
