- 130 views
In May of 2016, Senate Bill 269 was signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown. SB 269 gives small businesses the opportunity to fix ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) violations before getting sued. Small businesses with less than 50 employees, now have 120 days to hire a Certified Access Specialist (CASp) and fix any violations they might have.
One problem with ADA lawsuits in California is that they are often based on minor issues. This bill states that the business has 15 days to correct any technical violations from the date of the service of an ADA lawsuit, or ADA violation notice. There are 7 potential technical violations that could invite ADA lawsuits.
