In general, ADA compliance means that your business makes “reasonable accommodations” to assist people with disabilities. Compliance with these segments of the law might involve:

  • Having written policies on job accommodations, performance expectations, and disability-related leave or absences
  • Making minor adjustments to standard operating procedures
  • Allowing service animals and mobility devices
  • Adjusting the mode of communication with customers
  • Removing physical barriers to existing structures when readily achievable (without much difficulty or expense)

Business owners may consider undergoing an ADA compliance audit to ensure that they are compliant. We work with businesses to inspect their offices and other means of business and provide solutions.

Some areas that may be considered noncompliant include:

  • Lack of access into the building, such as: a slope that’s too steep, lack of a ramp and/or grab bar, lack of clearance space for wheel chairs, lack of signs to accessible doors
  • Doors as barriers, such as: five pounds of pressure or too much of a lip
  • Lack of space to navigate wheel chairs
  • Lack of access within the building
  • Surfaces or appliances that are too high
  • Bathrooms: lack of adequate signage; stalls with not enough space for a wheelchair; grab bars that are non-existent or out of compliance; mirrors that are too high; a sink, toilet or dryer that is too high
