The American Disabilities Act helps disabled individuals to be able to enjoy businesses across the country without being made to feel different or deficient. However, there have been some unfortunate cases where the ADA has been abused for frivolous lawsuit purposes. The state of California now has passed legislation that protects small businesses in three ways.
- Time to make corrections – If your business legitimately needs to make some changes to meet ADA regulations, you are given time to do so rather than being fined immediately.
- Delayed suits – While a person can file a complaint about your business, a lawsuit cannot be filed before you have had the proper amount of time to make the changes.
- ADA updates – Local governments are required to provide business owners with the latest updates to ensure you have time to make necessary changes rather than be sued for noncompliance over a changed law you would have had no way to know existed.
