This interactive session will help you understand how crafting “essential eligibility criteria” (EEC) under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) can decrease risk exposure while increasing inclusivity. We will break down the relevant parts of Title III of the ADA into practical terms. Then, we will begin the process of developing EEC. By the end, you should have a better grasp of how the ADA applies, along with clear actionable steps to assist with compliance, including: drafting or reviewing EEC; reviewing public-facing presence (website, marketing materials, etc.) to ensure that what you are putting out includes and/or aligns with your EEC and conveys that you do not discriminate based on disabilities; and designing and integrating into your staff training how to communicate appropriately regarding disability accommodation requests.
