Readily Achievable Barrier Removal Issues - focusing on small to mid-sized businesses

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Description

Removing barriers in existing facilities is an ongoing responsibility for many business owners. However, in recent years we have seen a steady increase in the number of Title III Lawsuits in the U.S. aimed at small businesses. At the heart of many cases are issues involving readily achievable barrier removal. Attorney Diego Demaya with the Southwest ADA Center will discuss readily achievable barrier removal requirements for businesses under ADA Title III. This session will review recent cases and how those decisions affect businesses and consumers as well as provide recommendations for how business owners can comply without much difficulty or expense. A legal update addressing so-called drive-by lawsuits will be provided including a look at developments such as the 99 drive-by lawsuits recently dismissed in the state of New Mexico.
