California has some of the most stringent laws protecting the civil rights of the disabled that affect business owners and property owners in regards to providing accessibility to their establishments. Non-compliance with these laws has resulted in more than 14,000 lawsuits over the past few years in California and have cost those business and property owners time and large sums of money. In some cases, this has caused some owners to think about closing their business due to non-compliance with the required accessibility laws, whether they were aware of them or not.

You CAN protect yourself and your business. A recent California law (see link: Benefits of SB 1608) has been enacted to encourage you to enlist the services of a Certified Accessibility Specialist (CASp), to ensure that your premises meets physical access compliance requirements. This will result in legal advantages to you should you become involved in a lawsuit. Making small efforts to improve accessibility not only opens the door to more customers, especially the disabled, but may offer tax benefits as improvements are made. While full compliance is not required immediately, they can be accomplished in stages over time, but, you are protected by SB 1608 only if you have had a Certified Accessibility Specialist inspect your property and business. This is where California Access Solutions can help.
