Americans with Disabilities Compliance

 

City of Santa Fe ADA Compliance
The Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides protections for individuals with disabilities in employment, public accommodations, and municipal services and programs.

Within disability compliance laws, the  five Titles of  The American with Disabilities Act, the Amendments Act of 2008, and the 504 Rehabilitation Act each govern  a different area of compliance:

Title I – Employment and Jobs

Title II – State and Local Governments

Title III – Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities

Title IV – Accessible Telecommunications

Title V – Miscellaneous Provisions

ADA Amendments  Act of 2008

The 504 Rehabilitation Act of 1973 also federally protects qualified individuals with disabilities from discrimination with any organization that receives federal financial assistance.
