Employment Law: ADA Compliance

Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act

Tannenbaum Helpern’s team of experienced attorneys has extensive experience helping businesses of all sizes achieve and maintain compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Our firm has defended a wide variety of allegations that our clients violated the ADA, and we regularly advise clients on how to mitigate the risk of future legal action. We help clients navigate and respond to allegations of an ADA violation, whether brought by a disabled person, an advocacy group, or the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and involving assertions of disability discrimination by employees or accessibility.


Our Employment Law practice regularly advises clients on how to respond to both present and potential allegations of disability discrimination. Tannenbaum Helpern’s ADA Compliance team, which includes litigators specializing in employment matters, helps companies create and maintain policies that comply with the ADA, trains the staff and supervisors of companies to ensure their familiarity with what is required under the ADA (as well as state and local laws), and guides businesses towards establishing and maintaining ADA compliant hiring practices. Based on this guidance and assistance, clients have been able to hire, employ, and accommodate disabled employees and individuals in a manner that is both cost-effective and legally sound.

Public Accommodations and Services Operated by Private Entities

Tannenbaum Helpern’s ADA Compliance team has experience assisting a variety of businesses with accommodation and accessibility claims. Resolving these types of allegations can be a complicated and multi-step process: architectural barriers must be identified, evaluated, and removed to ensure that disabled individuals have access to the goods and services offered by the business, including restrooms and parking. With increasing regularity, we are advising clients on how to make their company website or mobile application accessible to individuals that have a communication disability.

Our team has experience representing and negotiating with the full spectrum of potential parties in these matters, including landlords, owners, designers, contractors, private employers, and tenants. Our attorneys have handled ADA lawsuits and complaints, government investigations, and matters involving related state and local laws for:

  • Hotels and Hospitality Businesses
  • Medical Practices and Healthcare Providers
  • Shopping Centers and Retail Stores
  • Supermarkets and Food Sales
  • Restaurants, Bars, and Coffeehouses
  • Service Establishments

As more and more goods and services become automated the legal obligation to provide disabled persons access to online and electronic goods and services also increases. Tannenbaum Helpern’s ADA compliance attorneys help businesses assess their legal risk in order to strategically protect their company against allegations of non-accommodation in a variety of areas, including website accessibility, ATM location and design, reservation systems, ticketing, and kiosks.
