Don’t Forget about ADA

Over the past two years, COVID has forced many facilities managers to implement new health and safety protocols and retool how the building is utilized. All facilities managers need to remember to stay compliant with ADA event during these times otherwise you might have severe consequences. 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. This session will provide in-depth descriptions of compliance requirements and will provide unique insight to the Justice Department’s interpretation of these regulations. Join Joan Stein who has more than 30 years of experience as an ADA consultant for a practical, informative and interactive session.
