Compliance

Federal civil rights laws have long arms. Their requirements and rules may affect your organization in unexpected ways.

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act (1964), for example, prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin and includes affirmative legal requirements for providing effective, quality language assistance to people who do not speak or read English.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA, 1990) is well-known for requiring state and local government offices and most businesses to accommodate people with physical disabilities. The ADA also requires that governments and businesses provide language-based accommodations for people who are Deaf, hard of hearing, blind, or low vision.

More recently, Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act now stipulates a number of new federal civil rights laws for healthcare. Section 1557 regulations, which became federal law in Spring 2016, include requirements for communicating with limited English proficient (LEP) people and Deaf patients. These new regulations are the most far reaching civil rights protections for health care in U.S. history

In practice, all of these federal laws can put you and your organizations at risk of a costly discrimination lawsuit or federal investigation if you are unaware of what the law requires you to do, for example, when a Limited English Proficient (LEP) or Deaf person walks through your front doors.

The risk is especially great for medical professionals, since malpractice insurance does not cover the cost of money damages awarded by courts for civil rights violations.

That’s where we come in.

When our club wanted to help women who were being exploited, we decided to create an informational brochure and to have it translated into other languages in addition to English. It seemed like a daunting undertaking! Fortunately a committee member found Bromberg & Associates. At every step in the process of creating, translating and distributing the brochure, Jinny Bromberg and her capable staff provided creative solutions, always in a timely, fairly priced and cost-effective manner. Moreover, as a business committed to its community, Ms. Bromberg and her staff contributed their considerable knowledge and sensitivity, which greatly added to the project’s success. We look forward to working with them in the future.
