The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a far reaching law that aids and protects individuals with disabilities. The law is intended to guarantee access for individuals with disabilities to public facilities, employment, transportation, government services and telecommunications. The act empowered the Department of Justice to regulate the implementation of the statutes set forth in the law.

ADA regulations have implications in every aspect of life. Individuals with disabilities are awarded the civil rights similar to those provided on the basis of race, religion, and sex. Businesses and public organizations are subject to strict regulations to provide equal access to disabled citizens. Though the law is a great tool in providing equal access for disabled Americans, compliance with the many regulations can become a challenge for covered organizations.

ADA Compliance Training

To ensure that an organization is fully compliant with ADA regulations the use of tutorials, guides, and training classes is recommended. The Department of Justice has created many guides that are intended to help those responsible for complying with the law. However, these materials are very time consuming as the law has many, many real world implications.

To simplify the process of understanding the law, education and training institutions have designed courses that educate individuals of their responsibilities. Courses will cover the law as well as specific actions that must be taken in order to maintain compliance. Different industries will have varying responsibilities and courses are available that are industry specific. Becoming fully compliant and knowledgeable in ADA regulations should be considered an honor; any good citizen will be proud to provide equal access to an individual with a disability.
