Have You Been Sued For ADA Compliance Violations?
Your Small Business and the ADA: What You Need to Know
If you’re a business owner, you need to know your obligations under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). No matter what industry you’re in or service you provide, if you have customers, clients, a place of business, or even just a website, you likely run a “public accommodation” and have to ensure that your business complies with the extensive and complex requirements of the ADA.
Small Business Guide
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), which administers and enforces the ADA’s requirements, has published an extremely helpful guide to assist small business owners with ADA compliance. It answers a lot of common questions business owners have regarding their obligations and provides actionable guidance to help them meet those obligations. You can find the guide at this link: http://www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm
One of the most common accessibility and non-discrimination issues small businesses face is the accommodation of service animals. The DOJ has an informative service animal FAQ page on its ADA website that can help business owners avoid problems and facilitate the needs of customers with service animals.
