Protecting your Business from an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Claim

Chamber of Commerce members should be aware of a rash of recent federal lawsuits brought against local businesses and commercial property owners alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"). These lawsuits remind us of the need to comply with often complex ADA regulations and raise important questions about handicap accessibility and compliance with the ADA.

Making a lawful employee handbook

Effective business operation, reasonable employee conduct and lawsuit avoidance may be based upon a well-drafted employee handbook that clearly outlines their responsibilities and acceptable conduct. Minnesota employers, however, should also know that there are limitations and possible complications with drafting these guides and should take steps to assure regulatory compliance with their rules.

Federal law protects Minnesota workers from discrimination in their hiring and employment. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 specifically forbids a prospective employer from refusing to hire an applicant to avoid accommodating the applicant's religious practice that could be accommodated without undue hardship. Title VII also protects workers from discrimination at the workplace because of their religion.
