ADA about Interpreting
The ADA is a wide-ranging civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability.
Title II of the ADA forbids discrimination by public entities. Government agencies, courts, schools, social services agencies, recreational areas, and other departments are just a few examples of who falls under Title II of the ADA.
Title III prohibits discrimination by areas or groups that provide public accommodations. Places like hotels, restaurants, doctor’s offices, hospitals, banks, stores, and other public places fall under Title III of the ADA.
These two titles protect the right to have auxiliary aids or other services provided to ensure effective communication. Tax breaks or incentives are available to those who provide accommodation, so be sure to learn more about this:
