The U.S. Department of Justice, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and several other federal agencies receive complaints of disability discrimination, under the American with Disabilities Act, from people with disabilities across the country. In most cases, these agencies provide the individual with a right to sue letter. In the case of title III of the ADA, the individual may proceed with legal action without the formal right to sue letter.
When legal cases are brought to court, there is often a need for expert testimony regarding the technical aspects of the case. MTC has been involved in providing such testimony, as well as providing expert analysis for the legal counsels involved in the cases.
MTC’s expert testimony and analysis projects are typically undertaken at the request of a legal firm, and as such, are confidential in their nature.
The legal action projects supported by MTC include assessment of employment discrimination, education discrimination, public accommodation accessibility, corrections equal protection, compliance with accessibility standards and regulations, and workplace sensitivity.
MTC has provided in court testimony, analysis to support legal filings, training in support of settlements, and other miscellaneous analyses.
