Agenda:

Registration
11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Program and Lunch
12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

All businesses that serve the public have a legal obligation to make their facilities, goods, and services accessible to customers with disabilities. The rules that define equal access are set to change during the Obama Administration and businesses need to know how to prepare for them to minimize costs and litigation. 
Please join us for an informative briefing that will discuss:

  • ADA Title III requirements and the consequences of non-compliance;
  • Noteworthy recent lawsuits and investigations;
  • Proposed regulatory changes for physical facilities and business operations (e.g., accessible bathrooms, service counters, reach ranges, service animals, and safe harbor provisions);
  • Strategies for minimizing future retrofit costs and litigation; and
  • The expansion of the ADA to point of sale devices, other equipment, and websites.

Who Should Attend:

Legal counsel, risk management professionals, owners, and managers of businesses that are open to the public such as hotels, retailers, restaurants, health care providers, private educational institutions, childcare centers, spas and health clubs, golf courses, real estate developers and owners, and professional services providers.
