    Good Morning, we are looking at starting a classified section on our website for our members to use. I am looking to see how many other institutions have these and what they think about it. Does it cause any ADA issues, legal issues, etc.

      According to the Department of Justice (DOJ), the final rules are legally enforceable and binding six months after the date they are published in the Federal Register, which was September 15, 2010, making the compliance date March 15, 2011. However, under a safe harbor clause, compliance is not required for new construction and alterations until March 15, 2012, 18 months after the date of publication, if implementing the upgrades would result in an undue financial burden. During the 18 month period, the DOJ offers financial institutions (FIs) the choice to comply with either the updated 2010 regulations or the 1991 or 2004 regulations. However, the ADA requires each institution to implement a compliance plan by the effective date of the rule.
