Addressing ADA Accessibility Issues in the Public Sector

by Nikki Hall, League of California Cities

Although the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 has been in effect for nearly two decades, many public entities are not yet in compliance with its accessibility requirements. It is well understood that ADA prohibits discrimination against disabled workers who are able to perform essential job functions with or without reasonable accommodation. This article examines the ADA and what municipalities need to do in order to ensure they are in compliance.
