Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Seminar
If you have a shop or restaurant on Columbus Avenue, we strongly advise you to attend this talk by the experts on the ADA requirements. Restaurants and retailers continue to be sued under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which is costly and unnecessary and can be avoided. Come hear the experts to learn if your establishment is compliant, how a business can defend against plaintiff, ADA lawsuits, and related damages, the costs involved to become compliant, and whether insurance is available to a business to help protect against the growing ADA litigation threat.
This event is sponsored by the NYC Hospitality Alliance. You can find more information and RSVP to the event by clicking HERE or on the "Register Now" button below.
