- A 90-day stay of any legal action against you and an Early Evaluation Conference. Businesses must have had accessibility services performed by a CASp before any legal action is filed.
- Multiple damages may not be recovered at a single facility. CRASCA will help to ensure that damages may be claimed only when a plaintiff personally encountered a violation or was deterred from gaining access on a particular occasion. CRASCA clarifies that a denial of full and equal access constitutes one violation per distinct facility for purposes of damages. Damages may not be recovered for each and every single offense that may exist at the particular facility.
A CASp who is a member of the Certified Access Specialist Institute (CASI) can provide you with the three items that are required to afford you the protections provided by CRASCA. These items are:
- an accessibility evaluation of your facility
- a detailed report of items not in compliance with construction related accessibility standards
- a schedule for improvements prepared by the Owner with assistance by the CASp
Your responsibility is to adhere to the schedule and perform the improvements toward compliance.
