There has been a recent surge in lawsuits in the East Metro targeting businesses for not removing physical access barriers as determined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In response to this surge, the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Minnesota Council on Disability (MCD) to aid business owners in their efforts to meet ADA obligations.
Join our great subject-matter expert speakers at this FREE session to learn what it means to meet your ADA obligations under these standards, what to do if your business does not meet its obligations, and why many businesses are being threatened with related lawsuits. You will leave with the tools and knowledge you need to meet all of your obligations under the ADA and building code. MCD will present the ADA basics, the most common fixes and technical guidelines, and all the resources you will need to avoid lawsuits.
This session is open to both Chamber members and non-members.
