Title III of the ADA prohibits places of public accommodation (i.e., businesses or service establishments that are open to the public like grocery stores, doctors’ offices, recreation facilities, private schools,homeless shelters) from discriminating
against people with disabilities. If a person with a disability encounters an architectural barrier that prevents her from accessing the business, she
has 3 options under the ADA: speak with the business, file a complaint with the
Department of Justice, or file a lawsuit as provided under the law. The “ADA Education and Reform Act” upends a key provision of the ADA by preventing people with disabilities from immediately going to court to enforce their rights and to press for timely removal of the barrier that impedes access.
Without this critical enforcement mechanism, compliance under the ADA will
suffer and people with disabilities will be denied the access to which they are entitled to under the law.
