Hotel ADA defense lawyer with the latest update on ADA “sweeps” by the Department of Justice coming to Portland, San Francisco and elsewhere.
We discussed in earlier blogs that the DOJ is conducting in-depth investigations of hotels to determine whether they comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA. The investigations are called “sweeps” because they typically target all hotels in a given geographic area. One of the first notable ADA sweeps hit all the hotels in Manhattan’s Theater District, where we actively assisted clients.
A few days ago, we were contacted by a hotel in Portland, Oregon that had just received an investigative survey from DOJ. It appears that a similar sweep operation is being initiated there. We have also received information indicating that an ADA sweep might hit San Francisco in the near future.
Here is what you need to know about the sweeps, how they can affect you, and what you need to do.
