After it breezed through the California Legislature, Senate Bill 269 was signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, conferring major protections to small California businesses that find themselves on the receiving end of an ADA violations suit. The bill, effective immediately, will give small businesses under 50 employees additional time to comply with the law before incurring fines and fees. It will additionally give 15 days to address violations alleged in a suit.
Senator Richard Roth, the author of the bill, described the passage as a "major victory for all Californians."
