Dept. of Justice now offers Online ADA Complaint Form (finally)

DOJ seal
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), which enforces key mandates of the ADA, recently launched an online form for filing complaints electronically under the law. The ADA bans discrimination based on disability in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, transportation, and telecommunications. It covers a wide range of disability, from physical conditions affecting mobility, stamina, sight, hearing, and speech to conditions such as emotional illness and learning disorders. DOJ regulates and enforces requirements that apply to state and local governments, public accommodations, and commercial entities, including standards for buildings and facilities that are based on guidelines issued by the Board.

Those who wish to file an ADA complaint with DOJ can use the new web-based form which is available on DOJ's website at www.ada.gov/complaint. For further information or to receive a paper complaint form by mail, contact DOJ (800) 514-0301 FREE (v) or (800) 514-0383 FREE (TTY).
