As a business, there are numerous things to be thinking about. Some of these things will include choosing a legal structure for your business, nailing down your finances, and brushing up on the Employment Laws in your area. It may be easy to overlook some pretty important factors that could cause some issues down the road. We’re focusing on the importance of your business complying with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) regulations in this blog post to ensure your business and customers are taken care of. Here are some things you should keep in mind with your business:
The importance of removing architectural barriers. If there are stairs to your business, there should be a ramp option. This is one example of an architectural barrier that may need to be removed/replaced to ensure those with disabilities can access your business.
There must be accessible parking. Having wheelchair/van accessible parking that’s located close to the business allows for your company to be compliant with ADA regulations.
Sales and service counters must be a certain height. The counter must not be more than 36 inches above the floor to make it accessible.
These are a few things to keep in mind in order for your business to be compliant with ADA regulations. If you’re not careful to follow the necessary regulations, your business could end up dealing with a lawsuit.
