Public Accommodations Materials for Lawyers
The U.S. Department of Justice is responsible for issuing regulations enforcing Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodations such as stores, restaurants, day care centers, and other places of public accommodations. Visit the DOJ ’s ADA Home Page using the link above to find the statutory text, regulations, fact sheets and other resources.
The Department of Justice has entered into several settlement agreements addressing the obligations of day care providers to perform diabetes care tasks for children.
