Business Alert - Get Compliant!
It's The Law…
Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12181) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability by public accommodations and requires places of public accommodation and commercial facilities to be designed, constructed and altered in compliance with the accessibility standards established by this part.
What happens if my business is not compliant?
If you are in violation and are sued, you have no defense. Many persons with disabilities feel discriminated against by businesses where they cannot enter, properly use the facilities, or are made to feel like an outcast due to their disability.
Many of the people who sue businesses for ADA violations are honest and just want the business they patronize, or would like to patronize, to adhere to the law and make the proper modifications.
Unfortunately, there are other less ethical people whose litigious motivations behind their ADA violations suits are monetarily motivated. Either way, the defendant will incur attorney's fees, court costs, possible fines, and other legal
fees to defend the suit if he does not take immediate corrective action.
In the end, most businesses end up paying around $15,000 to lawyers on both sides, $5,000 in court costs and still must hire a contractor to do the ADA modifications, all the while hoping the federal government or the state won't issue
It always happens when you least expect it. Get ADA compliant today and eliminate the expensive problems that may occur. Many business owners have waited, or settled a case without fixing the problems only to get sued again for the same violations. Don't fall victim, get compliant today.
Whose responsibility - landlord or tenant?
Both the landlord who owns the building that houses a place of public accommodation and the tenant who owns or operates the place of public accommodation are subject to the requirements of this part. As between the parties (landlord and tenant), allocation of responsibilities for complying with the obligations in this part may be determined by lease or other contract.
What is it going to cost to get compliant?
There is no way around the fact that the compliance modifications will cost money, but this cost cannot be compared to the burden and cost of an ADA discrimination lawsuit.
The first step is to have us perform a low-cost inspection to identify if and where your establishment is non-compliant.
A Federal Tax Credit up to $5,000 is available to offset the compliance cost and an additional $15,000 Tax Deduction can be taken for a total of $20,000 in financial relief towards the compliance costs. We work directly with you or your accountant to ensure this IRS relief.
