Business owners have a lot to consider when it comes to running a successful business. One of those considerations is ensuring that the business and its facility is accessible to people with disabilities. The federal government ensures that businesses are accessible to people with disabilities through what is known as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA sets out certain standards with regard to accessibility of public accommodations that businesses must follow, such as ensuring that there are sufficient handicap parking spaces, or that restrooms have proper accommodations. The ADA enforces these standards by allowing those who have been discriminated against in locations that are not up to standard to file for injunctive relief and entitles recovery of legal fees, costs and litigation expenses from defendants (§12205).
