ADA Information.

Regional and Franchises are either small business or national big box but independent. Either way every location is responsible by Federal Law to have an ADA checkout even if you have a low countertop for your card and PIN terminal.

Where it gets interesting is, - is it the head office brand or the location owner who is liable when it comes to ADA fines and/or legal suits for discrimination for inaccessible checkouts via ADA regulatory requirements? The answer. Both.

A few things to help determine this is your contract with a brand and building owner. Ultimately, all involved are responsible, and it would lean toward the business owner. If the brand requires you to have a certain card and PIN reader and supplies its typical fixed mounting for the terminal, - reject it and point them to us. We can set the reality of this right away.

IRS Tax Credit. A 50% tax credit for assistive-technology our card reader terminal mounting is available. This is for businesses that make 1 million of less annually, (however), it also calls for 30 or less full-time employees that get the tax credit too.

Just as we always say, you have ADA parking, probably an ADA sticker on your entry, but do not have an ADA POS terminal checkout. If DEI committed, that's an inclusion problem to start with regardless of DEI.
