The American With Disabilities Act (ADA)

Decent Essays
In 1990, the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed, making those with disabilities equal to those without in the eyes of the law. Now, almost 30 years later hospitality/retail industries want to turn responsibility back on individuals. The ADA Education and Reform Act rewards business that fail to comply with the ADA and allows business to wait to remove barriers that impeded disabled Americans until after they are notified of their failure. With this legislation, the disability community would be the only protected class, under civil rights law, that would rely on education rather than enforcement. This possible new legislation would change the Americans with Disabilities Act, which allowed for equality and equity for disabled Americans.
