Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.I am sorry for this dilemma. The american's with disability act (ADA) requires businesses to make "reasonable accommodations" to folks who have a disability. So the ADA will require the course to allow you to bring your caregiver.
That said, there is nothing in the ADA that would require the business to allow the caregiver to accompany "free of charge".
So they can charge the fee
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that the ADA requires they give free access to your caregiver but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
