    More importantly, he author focuses on clearing up the confusion that is often associated with thinking that disability law is really just about designing doorways, bathrooms, and office space. While design issues are important to accessibility, there are many legal issues involved with knowing when certaitn elements of the law are applicable to a situation and in knowing what needs to be done to avoid claims of discrimination. Failure to comply with these requirements can be costly and can result in years of litigation.

    This book includes:

    • Straightforward discussion of relevant provisions of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), the Fair Housing Act (FHA), the Rehabilitation Act (RHA), and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) and explanation of terms and concepts under the ADA, FHA, RHA, and ABA;

    • Analysis of all three methods of proving discrimination for failure to comply with disability laws;

    • Discussion of potential defenses to complaints regarding lack of accessibility—not every request for greater accessibility has to be met, certain criteria apply; and

    • Numerous examples and illustrations enhance understanding of rules and regulations.
