Crafting and Managing Your ADA Compliance Plan


About this session:

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law that is complaint driven. Unlike building codes, the ADA is enforced either through investigations performed by the U.S. Department of Justice or by the federal courts; both stemming from complaints or allegations received from individuals with disabilities. ADA is something that every facilities manager needs to aware and informed or your organization might have severe consequences. This session will provide in-depth descriptions of compliance requirements, and will provide unique insight to the Justice Department’s interpretation of these regulations. Over the past several years, ADA litigation has increased exponentially and the risk has increased. This hands-on workshop will help you identify key areas and strategies for your ADA evaluation. Join Joan Stein who has more than 25 years of experience as an ADA consultant for a practical, informative and interactive session.
