AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT DEADLINE DRAWS NEAR

 AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT DEADLINE DRAWS NEAR
 The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is one of the most


important, yet most controversial, pieces of legislation to pass in the United States in terms of civil rights, according to a local attorney. The bill has been viewed as too vague by some, yet too demanding by others.
 Regardless, the law -- which is expected to affect an estimated 43 million disabled workers -- goes into effect in January 1992. Consequently, employers with 25 or more employees have about one month to bring their facilities into compliance.
 -- What will this new law require of employers?
 -- Are there certain industries that will be more affected by this new law?
 -- What will the penalty for non-compliance be?
 -- How much will compliance cost employers in terms of new construction and alteration or auxiliary aids?
 Suanne Tiberio Trimmer, a Detroit-area attorney specializing in employment law, is available to discuss the legalities of this legislation, as well as potential problems and can provide guidelines for specific industries in terms of compliance.
