New ADA Regulations are Now in Effect

The first revised regulations to the Americans with Disabilities Act in 20 years took effect March 15. For the most part, compliance with the new regulations is not mandated until March 15, 2012. According to the Department of Justice, this delay allows businesses enough time to implement the new requirements.

However, attorney Matthew Fusco of ChamberlainD’Amanda explained the new regulations concerning accessibility and communication technology apply immediately to facilities constructed or revamped after March 15.
