Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

Webinar Series: ADA Legal Issues
from the Great Lakes ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network

Description:

Religious organizations are largely exempt from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). But what about places of public accommodation or programs that are controlled by these entities? What does this mean for religious entities that operate schools? Are employees of religious organizations covered by the employment provisions of the ADA? If the ADA does not apply to these entities, can states then require them to comply with their accessibility standards?

This session will examine:

  • Whether Title I of the ADA applies to religious entities as employers
  • If and how the ADA applies to religious organizations in situations where they provide goods, services, or programs to the public.
  • How receiving federal funds impacts these organizations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
  • Applicable cases
