Municipal Governments and The Americans with Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has resulted in an enormous benefit to disabled persons and has become a costly issue for municipalities. The challenge of retrofitting an antique infrastructure to bring it into compliance with this statute has been met with the help of BHPK’s attorneys and staff.
With regard to individual employees, the ADA requires that the employer and employee engage in an interactive process to see if the disability can be reasonably accommodated. Our attorneys have had extensive hands-on experience in hundreds of instances in which these disputes have been resolved. We are especially proud of BHPK’s record in this area.
