SACRAMENTO – Senator Ted Gaines (R-Rocklin) along with Placer County Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery; Nevada County Supervisor Ted Owens; the Truckee-Donner and North

Lake Tahoe Chambers of Commerce; California Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse; and Lawyers Against Lawsuit Abuse, have teamed up to host a workshop for small businesses focused on

Americans with Disability Act (ADA) issues.

This event is being held in response to the alarming number of lawsuits being filed in the region against small businesses for minor ADA/accessibility issues like having incorrect railing height or parking lot striping color. Many of these businesses have been forced to close their doors because they can’t afford to operate after settling these abusive lawsuits.

Attendees will get an update on state and federal ADA laws and also receive a walk-through of what they need to know about ADA lawsuits including how to reduce their risk of being sued, and what to do if they have already have been sued.

This workshop is a “can’t miss” opportunity for business owners to learn important information about protecting themselves!

WHEN: Monday, April 30

6:00-8:00 p.m.

WHERE: Truckee Donner Public Utility District (Board Chambers)

11570 Donner Pass Road

Truckee, CA 96161
