Get up to date on ADA laws

Businesses that serve the public are required to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This law applies to all types of businesses, from small local businesses to large corporations. Learn which businesses must comply with ADA and find out what they need to do in order to meet ADA standards.

Familiarize Yourself with the Basics of ADA Compliance

Make sure you familiarize yourself with the basics of ADA compliance. That includes understanding when a business is subject to ADA standards and what qualifies as a disability under ADA law. You should also get up-to-date on the types of policies and procedures businesses are required to follow in order to comply with ADA regulations. Take time to research and understand any applicable local, state, or federal laws pertaining to public access for persons with disabilities.

Understand Your Obligations When Interacting With Customers and Clients

When interacting with customers and clients, business owners should be aware of their legal obligation to make reasonable efforts to accommodate individuals with disabilities. Depending on the type of business, this could mean making changes to office building access or providing alternative methods for communication. For instance, a restaurant may need to provide menus that include both text and images. Providing information in different formats is important for meeting ADA compliance regulations as well as offering quality customer service.

Offer Reasonable Modifications and Accommodations for Disabilities

According to the Americans With Disabilities Act, businesses must make reasonable modifications and accommodations for individuals with disabilities. This may include making changes to physical structures in order to make them accessible. Businesses should follow accepted standards of accessibility and also adhere to local building codes when making changes. Additionally, they should consider providing alternative methods of communication and services so individuals with disabilities can access information just as any other customer or client would. It is important for business owners to keep up-to-date on the latest ADA laws in order to remain compliant.
