Register now for the June 18th ADA Lunch and Learn webinar: Private Businesses Open to the Public!  

Employee Work Areas and Break Rooms

MarMarch 7 2024

11:00am - 1:00pm


There is often a misconception that the ADA does not apply to Employee Only spaces, this is untrue. Exceptions do exist for Employee Work Areas, but all common use spaces need to be fully accessible, even those only serving employees. During this webinar, presenters will explain the differences between employee only areas and employee work areas and where exceptions apply. Additionally, they will cover the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for the common areas that are most often found within employee only spaces, including accessible routes, break rooms/kitchenettes, and toilet rooms. Actual technical assistance scenarios will be used to provide real-life examples and further knowledge of applying the Standard to employee only and employee work areas.


This session will offer real-time captioning and Video Remote Sign Language Interpreters.


Individuals will be able to submit questions in advance during the registration process. Questions may also be submitted during the live session.
