DO'S AND DON'TS OF COMPLIANCE; DISABILITIES ACT VIDEO COULD AVOID LAWSUITS

 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- A video cassette, which could prevent costly lawsuits from the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), has been released here by a major publisher of business materials.
 "'Business Compliance with the ADA' is a 60-minute video designed to help business comply with the strict guidelines of the ADA and could save thousands of dollars from a costly lawsuit," according to Max Fallek, president of the American Institute of Small Business (AISB). "The ADA will be as important in the next few years for setting standards in the work environment of the 90s as sexual harassment and age discrimination issues were for the 80s," Fallek said.
 "Business needs to know what to ask and what not to say in job interviews and on their employment applications, what facilities and work conditions are required," he said. "Our video explains interview/placement skills, employment conditions and required facilities -- things like construction of ramps, entrances and exits, work area lighting, special equipment, signage, break area access and rest room hardware.
 "Furthermore, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission expects a 20 percent caseload increase in the next few years from non-compliance lawsuits totalling millions of dollars. Cost of the video is $69.95, less than the cost of one hour of legal fees defending a lawsuit," Fallek said.
 AISB is a publisher of books, manuals, computer software and videos for business, high schools, colleges and libraries as well as management materials for business.
