Senator Gaines & Assemblywoman Gaines Team Up To Host ADA Compliance Workshops

SACRAMENTO – Senator Ted Gaines (R-Rocklin) and Assemblywoman Beth Gaines (R-Rocklin) along with local chambers of commerce, California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse, and Lawyers Against Lawsuit Abuse, have teamed up to host a series of workshops for small businesses focused on Americans with Disability Act (ADA) issues....




These events are being held in response to the alarming number of lawsuits being filed in the region against small businesses for minor ADA/accessibility issues like having incorrect railing height or parking lot striping color. Many of these businesses have been forced to close their doors because they can’t afford to operate after settling these lawsuits.


During the workshops, Assemblywoman Gaines will provide information on her two important measures, Assembly Bills 1878 and 1879, aimed at curtailing frivolous ADA lawsuits and pinpointing conflicting state and federal ADA regulations.



Attendees will also receive a walk-through of what they need to know about ADA lawsuits including how to reduce their risk of being sued, and what to do if they have already have been sued.

Panelists will also include Tom Scott, Executive Director for California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse and David Peters, CEO and General Counsel for Lawyers Against Lawsuit Abuse who has been consulted in more than 850 ADA lawsuits throughout the U.S.


These workshops are a “can’t miss” opportunity for business owners to learn important information about protecting themselves!
