Region 4: Public Accommodations: State by State Enforcement and Remedies

Many states have their own disability rights laws that complement the “public accommodations” provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title III. Some states have different definitions of who is protected or what entities are required to comply, as well as different requirements or prohibitions. Some states provide an agency, either mandatory or voluntary, to assist with investigation and enforcement. States may provide different remedies, such as damages or criminal penalties for violations.
