11:00am - 12:30pm
This session will review key facts, issues, and resolutions of notable settlement agreements and conciliations posted publicly by the Federal agencies that enforce the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and related anti-discrimination laws. We will review notable cases to extract some of the less obvious policies or themes embedded in targeted enforcement efforts. Discussions will include exploration of possible reasons why civil rights offices target certain segments of our economy but not others. We will also isolate some key take-aways that should be duly noted by those of us who peruse these outcomes to provide technical assistance, advocate, or simply appreciate why a Federal agency ultimately takes court action against a particular business, government entity, a landlord, or even a solo legal or medical practice. This webinar aims to point out the importance of appreciating the stated and unstated themes behind these secondary examples of compliance and enforcement. While they may not be as important as actual court decisions, these Federal enforcement efforts represent the backbone of ADA compliance across the country.
