Public Accommodation Under the Americans with Disabilities Act: How Does the ADA’s Title III Apply to Your Small Business?

Over the past few years, many small businesses have seen an influx in lawsuits for violating Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which protects disabled individuals from discrimination in places of public accommodations including restaurants, retail stores, hotels, and much more. Under Title III, places of public accommodations are required to provide specific services and ensure effective communication for customers with disabilities.

Join Beth Milito, Senior Executive Counsel with NFIB’s Small Business Legal Center, and Dana Barton, Director, Rock Mountain ADA Center, as they discuss the most common ADA violations many businesses must address.

Beth and Dana will outline the legal risks of noncompliance with the ADA and answer the most common questions about public accommodation compliance, including:

  • An overview of what constitutes a public accommodation
  • Landlord versus tenant responsibility for public accommodation
  • Parking requirements
  • Restroom access
  • Service animal policy
  • Website accessibility

Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask Beth and Dana questions throughout the presentation.
