All of us believe in and work toward a society where individuals with disabilities are assured the opportunity to participate and grow within our communities. This participation is vital to our society, and also to the health of our economy. The purpose of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is to make sure that individuals with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. The ADA prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including any public or private area that is accessible and open to the general public. These areas can also be regarded as places of public accommodations. Places of public accommodations include facilities such as hotels, gas stations, convenience stores, restaurants, shopping centers, laundromats, dry cleaners, and more. Today, this diverse group of consumers makes up a significant portion of America’s growing market for businesses, which means proper steps must be made to avoid liability for failure to comply with the ADA.
