John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990, by President George H.W. Bush. In enacting the ADA, Congress specifically encouraged the use of alternative means of dispute resolution, including mediation, to resolve ADA disputes. Through its ADA Mediation Program, the Department of Justice refers appropriate ADA disputes to mediators at no cost to the parties. The mediators in the program are professional mediators who have been trained in the legal requirements of the ADA. In this course, we will review the process of ADA complaint filing and learn how to resolve ADA complaints through mediation quickly and effectively. In addition, we will examine some of the cases successfully settled through the ADA mediation.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
