In May of 2016, Senate Bill 269 was established, allowing a grace period from liability for statutory damages. This urgency measure became effective immediately for businesses with 50 or fewer employees. SB 269 gives a business owner 120 days from the date of the CASp inspection, to correct all violations listed in the report. For businesses with 50 or fewer employees, the business owner now has another option for reduced liability for minimum statutory damages. This is in addition to an option that existed under a previously enacted statute.
On January 1, 2017, California Assembly Bill 2093 went into effect. AB 2093 amended California Civil Code Section 1938 and expanded landlord disclosure requirements under commercial leases in California.
One problem with ADA lawsuits in California is that they are often based on minor issues. This bill states that the business has 15 days to correct any technical violations from the date of the service of an ADA lawsuit, or ADA violation notice. There are 7 potential technical violations that could invite ADA lawsuits.
In September of 2012, Senate Bill 1186 was signed into law in California. This bill was enacted to help prevent litigation abuse, which is becoming a big problem in the state of California. These lawsuits cost California jobs, threaten small businesses, and in many cases, don’t even result in improved access for those who need it. There are a few ways that SB 1186 can help business and property owners.
