A new partnership between the Center for Disability Rights (CDR) and ABC Law Firm will help area small businesses comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the federal law that specifies accommodations for disabled people. CDR is also helping individuals throughout the area identify ADA violations and work toward remedies for these violations. If necessary, CDR may go to court to promote compliance with the law.

“We want to ensure access across our area for people with disabilities and we are happy to work with businesses to proactively improve access. That is what this training is about,” said John Doe, CDR’s President and CEO.

CDR’s ADA compliance training session will be held on August 17, 2012, at 3:00 pm at 100 Main Street. The ADA compliance training will address a wide range of violations and discuss steps and tools for ensuring compliance. Employment discrimination against people with disabilities will also be discussed. The training is free and open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated but not required. RSVPs and questions may be directed to Jenny Smith at 555-555-1212 or by email.
