BEWARE

A lot of money is wasted by business owners cutting corners and using contractors who do not work closely with ADA Experts. This often results in eg. Parking restriping being done incorrectly, signage being incorrect, access routes being releveled with the incorrect gradient etc.

Businesses Cannot Afford to be out of ADA Compliance.

Any business that interfaces with the public is responsible for complying with ADA accessibility guidelines. Private individuals may bring lawsuits in which they can obtain court orders to stop discrimination and file for damages. Individuals may also file complaints with the Attorney General, who is authorized to bring lawsuits in cases of general public importance or where a pattern or practice of discrimination is alleged. In these cases, the Attorney General may seek monetary damages and civil penalties. Civil penalties may not exceed $50,000 for a first violation or $100,000 for any subsequent violation.

SEC. 12. Section 1938 is added to the Civil Code

The complex area of disabled access compliance is unique in California in that not only are there state codes and regulations that must be met, but there are also federal code requirements and the two do not always compliment one another. Add to this that both federal and state codes are continually evolving and you have an environment that can be very confusing for building owners and operators.

ADA Requirements and Renovating or Altering Facilities

All alterations that can affect the usability and accessibility of a facility must be made in an accessible manner to the maximum extent feasibly possible. For example, if during renovations a doorway is being relocated, the new doorway must be wide enough to meet the new construction standard for accessibility. When alterations are made to a specific tenant space, an accessible path of travel to the altered area must be provided. The bathrooms, telephones, and drinking fountains serving that area must also be made accessible. These additional accessibility alterations are only required to the extent that the added accessibility costs do not exceed 20% of the cost of the total alteration. Elevators are generally not required in facilities under three stories or with fewer than 3,000 square feet per floor, unless the building is a shopping center or mall; the professional office of a health care provider; a terminal, depot, or other public transit station; or an airport passenger terminal.
