Arcor Inc has spent over 20 years helping a variety of businesses, including RESTAURANTS, BARS & FOOD SERVICE BUSINESSES, become ADA Compliant and become less of a target for ADA Lawsuits.In California, the Restaurant and Food Service businesses have for a long time been one of the most popular businesses to be targeted in ADA lawsuits. ADA compliance claims, often address a lack of ADA tables, ADA compliant countertops, ADA compliant restrooms, including grab bars, stalls, doorways and mirrors. In addition to this, accessible parking, accessible routes and ramps with the wrong incline, accessible doorways, have been highlighted. ADA compliance in outdoor seating areas is also important to pay attention to, particularly since Covid has shifted dining outdoors. Restaurateurs need to be proactive about getting their premises inspected and brought into ADA Compliance.
No Businesses are exempt from the ADA California Building Codes, and both state and federal ADA Laws apply. Restaurants are required to comply with Title III of the ADA. This provision prevents discrimination against customers with disabilities and requires businesses to provide accommodations that improve accessibility and participation for disabled customers.
In order to avoid ADA LAWSUITS, we will help you identify any barriers to access and show you how to correct these.
THE BEST ADA PLAN OF ACTION FOR RESTAURANTS, BARS, & FAST FOOD FACILITIES
Although your Restaurant or food service facility may be compliant with the 1991 ADA Standards, it is very likely not in compliance with the latest California Building Code. If you fail to do your due diligence and simply choose the “cheapest” quote for your ADA inspection, you may find you have an unqualified, inexperienced inspector who gives you a sub-standard service. This typically costs you more in the long term because of incorrect and unnecessary recommendations or “improvements”. By hiring one of our experienced CERTIFIED ACCESS SPECIALISTS (CASp), you get a thorough ADA CASp Inspection, quality service, follow up, and of course, a CASp CERTIFICATE. It is only in this way that you get “qualified defendant status” and qualify for the legal benefits that are associated with having a property that is CASp Certified.
