ADA Compliance Law

If you have a disability, the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) provides you with a broad set of protections from discrimination in the workplace. It also requires private businesses, including websites, to make accommodations so that disabled patrons can have equal access to facilities.

Businesses that neglect to accommodate employees or patrons with disabilities may be violating the ADA. Not only do they subject themselves to fines and other penalties from the federal government, they could be legally liable for compensatory damages, as well.

Choosing the right law firm can make all the difference in discrimination cases. The ADA discrimination attorneys at Morgan & Morgan are ready to fight by your side for the compensation and justice you deserve. And we never charge by the hour — you pay us only if we win.

Compliance in Facilities

Achieving ADA compliance means following the federal government's compliance standards for both public entities and privately owned businesses. The ADA mandates an "affirmative duty" for businesses dealing with the public.

A common compliance standard is an access ramp that allows disabled individuals to enter a building. Businesses must also provide an accessible entrance, remove physical barriers inside the building, provide accessible parking and lavatories, consider the placement of goods on shelves, and a variety of other standards.

Website Compliance

In 2010, the ADA released its Web Content Accessibility Guidelines; the list was updated in 2018.

The ADA expects websites to provide broad accommodations to disabled users, including the following:

  • Heightened screen contrast
  • Captions on videos and audio files
  • Low background audio
  • More legible font choices and sizes

The Consequences of Noncompliance

Violations of ADA requirements may subject a business to legal consequences ranging from citations and license restrictions to fines and injunctions that require the company to make the necessary accommodations.

If a business, restaurant, or other privately-owned facility's failure to be compliant with ADA regulations results in the injury of a person with a disability, it can also face a personal injury lawsuit. Because this area of the law is complex, with hundreds of compliance standards, individuals seeking damages should consult an experienced ADA lawyer to find out if the company may be liable.
