Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title II Training Course
While Title I of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects the workplace rights of persons with disabilities by prohibiting discrimination by employers, Title II of the ADA protects their civil rights. Title II requires State and local governments to provide access to public programs, activities and services in such manner that does not discriminate against individuals with disabilities.
Non-compliance with Title II has serious consequences. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) enforces Title II through “Project Civic Access”, an initiative to ensure counties, cities, towns and villages eliminate all physical and communication barriers that could prevent people with disabilities from engaging fully in community life. Enforcement of Title II is the responsibility of DOJ investigators, attorneys and architects who routinely survey state and local government facilities and programs nationwide to identify modifications needed to meet ADA requirements.
