Understanding ADA Violations: What You Need to Know

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in all areas of public life. This includes jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places open to the general public. It's designed to ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. 

As a business owner, it's crucial to understand the requirements of ADA, which include:

  • ADA Title I focuses on employment and requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide reasonable accommodations for applicants and employees with disabilities.
  • ADA Title II applies to state and local government entities and protects people with disabilities from discrimination in services, programs, and activities provided by these entities.
  • ADA Title III applies to public accommodations and commercial facilities, including restaurants, hotels, theaters, doctor's offices, pharmacies, retail stores, museums, libraries, parks, private schools, and daycare centers.

If you're unsure whether your business meets all ADA requirements, it's advisable to consult with a qualified ADA defense attorney. Our team at MSD Business is well-versed in ADA regulations and can provide accurate, timely advice to ensure your business remains compliant. We can help you understand your responsibilities under the ADA, guide you through any necessary changes, and represent you effectively if you're facing an ADA violation litigation.

How ADA Violations Can Impact Your Business

The ramifications of ADA violations on your business can be substantial. First, businesses that do not comply with ADA standards can face legal penalties, including hefty fines. These fines can range anywhere from $55,000 to $150,000 for a first violation and can increase for subsequent violations. Moreover, businesses may be required to pay damages to individuals who have been discriminated against or denied access due to non-compliance. Importantly, the law allows for so-called “testers.”  These are individuals with disabilities that may travel throughout the state with the sole purpose of covertly checking out your access, bathroom setup and fixtures, and other items for compliance. The attorney fees can be very expensive. Upon any notices, it is best to contact an attorney versed in ADA defense immediately so that you can avoid incurring any costly mistakes.

ADA violations can also lead to reputational damage. In today’s interconnected world, news of non-compliance with disability laws can spread quickly, losing customer trust and patronage. This can negatively affect your brand image and, in turn, your bottom line. Customers are increasingly conscious of businesses' commitment to inclusivity, and any perceived discrimination can have lasting consequences.

Lastly, ADA violations might necessitate expensive modifications to your facilities or operations. If your business is found to be non-compliant, you may be required to make accessibility modifications, which can be costly. The cost of these modifications often far outweighs the initial investment in becoming ADA-compliant.
