Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
DeafConnect offers assistance for those individuals who feel that discrimination has occurred or that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been in some way violated. We also can assist any business entity on suggestions on how the law reads and its effects.
Many sites on the internet discuss the ADA and its various parts (titles).
Title I: Prohibits employers with 15 or more employees from discriminating against qualified people with disabilities.
Title II: Addresses state governments with emphasis on facilities and buildings having enough space for wheelchair accessibility, communications providing 911 access, and signs for the blind or those with low vision.
Title III: Involves public accommodations and the offering of tax credits for those who comply.
Title IV: Directives on how the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) makes accommodations, especially on relay services.
Title V: Legal limitations are defined and retaliation is prohibited.
Title VI: Transportation issues.
Title VII: Equal employment opportunities.
