Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance for Nonprofit Organizations
The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) requires that employers with more than 15 employees (including nonprofits) make reasonable accommodations for the employment of disabled individuals. The ADA also requires “public accommodation” nonprofits that offer goods or services (e.g. a common area waiting room or, in some cases, even a website) must make those places accessible to the disabled. Nonprofits that fail to comply with these requirements leave themselves vulnerable to claims and potential litigation, including from persons that actively seek out, and specialize in, ADA lawsuits. This presentation will address ways to mitigate those risks and will cover topics including: compliance with ADA requirements when advertising jobs and hiring; required accessibility of physical premises and websites as well as potential amendments to the ADA and the related legislative outlook.
Learning Objectives: Attendees will learn about ADA compliance requirements, increase their ability to comply and decrease their exposure to associated claims.
For nonprofit Board members and managers seeking to learn about their obligations under the ADA.
Presenters: William Ng, Partner and Matt Capobianco, Associate at Littler Mendelson P.C.
