Americans with Disabilities Act for Banks

Online Training

The ADA applies to almost all employers. It covers employers with 15 or more employees, labor organizations, employment agencies and joint labor-management committees. It also applies to state governments.

As a result, most banks will find themselves subject to the ADA. Additionally, the ADA includes specific requirements for the construction of ATMs and areas where ATMs are located. The first part of this course will discuss how the ADA impacts hiring and employment. We will then discuss how banks can improve accessible customer service standards and the ADA requirements for ATM construction.
