The ADA National Network is pleased to announce the upcoming session in the ADA Legal Webinar Series, March 12, 2014 focusing on “The ADA and Religious Institutions.”

Although religious institutions are largely exempt from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) there are situations where these entities are indeed covered by the law. What does this mean for religious entities that operate schools? Are employees of religious organizations covered by employment provisions under the ADA? Further, what about religious entities receiving federal funds such as faith-based grants? Does the ADA apply to those operating businesses open to the public? The presenter will also discuss some of the more recent cases and examples of these situations and whether the ADA applies. During this session we will examine how the ADA applies to religious institutions/organizations with regards to:
Title I- Employment
Entities that receive federal funds under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
Title III- Public Accommodations and operation of Commercial Facilities

Speaker:
Judy Spalding-J.D.
