ADA for Title II Entities Workshop
Tuesday, June 4, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CDT)
The Americans with Disabilities Act celebrated it's 22nd anniversary in 2012. Never, in the history of the Act, has litigation been higher and compliance more confusing, especially for Title II entities.
Change often causes confusion and the standards and their application have changed, as of March 15, 2012.
Are you ready? Do you have an up-to-date transition plan if the Department of Justice were to ask for it? Did you know you needed one? Do you know what needs to be in it?
Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act is mandatory. That fact seems to becoming clearer and clearer as cities in Texas, and around the country, have been hit with both private law suits from local citizens and large settlement agreements from the United States Department of Justice.
Many more wonder when it will be them and what they need to do to avoid it.
- How do we get compliant curb ramps, we have topography that just doesn't work?
- Do we really have to do a transition plan?
- Who really understands the ADA and how to implement it?
These are just a few of the questions we hear every day. Questions that deserve answers... So, we've developed a training class specifically for Title II Entities. Detailed information will be provided about all aspects of compliance.
