Bussiness for accomodating able adults
However, it may be appropriate to exclude a service animal from operating rooms or other units where the animal’s presence may compromise a sterile environment.
Providers of public accommodations cannot exclude service animals because of their “no pets” policy but may exclude a service animal if, for instance, the animal is not effectively controlled by its owner or is not housebroken.
However, if an element of a public accommodation facility that had complied with the 1991 Standards is altered, then the alteration must comply with the 2010 Standards.
For example, if a bank moves the location of an ATM machine, that is considered an alteration and the ATM must now meet the 2010 keypad standards for use by persons with disabilities.
If you believe that you have been discriminated against based on disability, please contact the Civil Rights Bureau of the New York State Attorney General’s Office at (212) 416-8250 or Civil. Public Accommodations The federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990 with the goal of providing people with disabilities with equal opportunity, full participation, independent living and economic self-sufficiency.
Under the ADA’s “Public Accommodations” provision, any business that provides goods or services to the public (i.e., businesses to which the general public is normally or customarily invited or permitted) is considered a public accommodation, and is required to construct or adjust its physical space, as well as its policies and procedures, to make sure that people with physical and sensory disabilities have the same access to its facilities and services as people without disabilities.
However, a business is not required to provide a service that would create an undue burden on that business, or that would pose a significant difficulty or expense to the business. The ADA defines a service animal as any dog that is trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric or other mental disability.
Dogs that satisfy this definition are considered service animals under the ADA regardless of whether they have been licensed or certified by a state or local government, or any other entity.
