About The ADA Compliance and Defense Guide, Understanding, preventing and defending claims and enforcement actions under the ADA
It will not surprise U.S. hotel owners and operators to learn that that business owners and operators in the U.S. have been subjected to more than 20,000 ADA civil lawsuits and DOJ enforcement actions since the ADA was enacted in 1991 – and most of those lawsuits were filed in the last 5 years. JMBM’s Global Hospitality Group® provides practical ADA compliance and defense advice for owners and operators. This book is an example and was written specifically to help owners and operators understand the challenges they face, encourage preventative compliance, and to prepare to defend ADA lawsuits.

Through numerous case studies, the Guide also addresses Department of Justice investigations and private plaintiff litigation. CONTINUE READING →
