CJAC ADA Seminars Can Provide Valuable Guidance for Small Businesses

Yesterday CJAC President Kim Stone continued our Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) seminars, this one hosted by State Senator Joel Anderson and the Poway, CA Chamber of Commerce. CJAC has held a number of seminars in recent years across California to help small business owners understand the importance of complying with ADA to avoid a costly lawsuit. The ADA rules can get very complicated and it can be difficult to know if you're in compliance. When you combine that with the fact that there are serial plaintiffs out there, as we often point out, abusing the law to force settlement payments regardless of whether the fixes are made, business owners must be diligent when it comes to disabled access.

While CJAC seminars are educational only, not specific legal advice, they help small business owners become more familiar with the law and what's at stake. The only sure-fire way to avoid a lawsuit is to become fully ADA-compliant, and there is still a great deal of education needed on how to accomplish that.

If you'd like to schedule an ADA seminar in your area, contact our staff member Marie Ortega at mortega@cjac.org or 916-443-4900.
