The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) continues to be one of the most hotly contested and litigated civil rights laws. All of the new ADA developments, from lawsuits, federal enforcement, to proposed regulations, can be dizzying to follow. We make it easier for you with our 3rd Annual Roundtable, 2018 & the ADA: The Year in Review to be held during two sessions on Wednesday, December 5th, 2018.
Our topics include: 2018 litigation round-up, ADA courtroom testimonies and evidence that are not generally available to the public, tips on avoiding a courthouse summons, losing federal funds for non-compliance and discrimination (these cases do happen), and the outlook for 2019 and beyond.
