Cozen O’Connor: Here’s How to Make Sure Your Small Business is ADA Compliant

Here’s How to Make Sure Your Small Business is ADA Compliant

Monday, February 13, 2017

Evan Berquist, an associate in Cozen O’Connor’s Corporate Practice Group, discusses Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance issues for small businesses on the National Federation of Independent Business’s website, NFIB.com. Evan says that, when it comes to ADA compliance, “there is no easy, one-size-fits-all solution.” He suggests that business owners should adopt ADA compliance in a way that makes sense for their particular business: “Having a handicap-accessible ramp may be an important part of compliance for the grocery store down the street, but if your business conducts most of its sales online, then you should be thinking about whether your site is accessible to people with vision or hearing impairments.” Evan concludes that, “What is readily achievable for one company may be more or less than what’s required of another. Each business will have a different employee profile, business model, and levels of achievable resources.”
