8/21/19- ADA Regulations, An Overview
The Americans with Disabilities Act celebrated its 29th anniversary in July 2019. Never, in the history of the Act, has litigation been higher and they just raised the cost of non-compliance again. More importantly, the Federal Agencies have recommitted to the enforcement of the ADA and are doing so by withholding Federal Funding.
Unfortunately, compliance has never been more confusing. Change often causes confusion and the standards and their application have changed, as of March 15, 2012. Are you ready? Do you have an up-to-date transition plan if the Department of Justice were to ask for it? Did you know you needed one? Do you know what needs to be in it or how to put it all together? Do you realize not having one can jeopardize any federal funding you receive and put you at risk of litigation? Not just from the DOJ but also from private citizens. Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act is mandatory. That fact seems to becoming clearer and clearer as cities around the country, have been hit with both private law suits from local citizens and large settlement agreements from the United States Department of Justice. Many more wonder when it will be them and what they need to do to avoid it. How do we get compliant curb ramps, we have topography that just doesn’t work? Do we really have to do a transition plan? Who really understands the ADA and how to implement it? What has to be in a transition plan?
