Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Obligations

If you own, operate, lease, or lease to a business that serves the public, then you are covered by the ADA and have obligations for existing facilities as well as for compliance when a facility is altered or a new facility is constructed.  Existing facilities are not exempted by "grandfather provisions" that are often used by building code officials.
