Do You Understand the Implications of ADA Compliance for Your Website and Business?
ADA compliance for websites is confusing for many companies and unfortunately off the radar for others. There’s no singular federal requirement or associated fixed penalties, so many businesses tend to think it doesn’t apply to them or that they aren’t big enough to be impacted by the requirements. The truth is that’s not the case.
The most important thing to know is that there is a tide of legal action taking place regarding website ADA accessibility. This can largely be attributed to the US Supreme Court’s rejection of hearing a lower court decision regarding the ADA. A Circuit Court found that websites are considered public spaces and thus require equal accessibility for all people.
This broad decision has formed the basis for legal action against websites that are non-ADA Compliant. The number of demand letters from lawyers to companies of all sizes is on the rise, and you don’t want to get caught in an easily avoidable legal battle. Even more importantly, you want to be able to connect with every potential customer, regardless of their ability.
What is ADA Website Compliance?
Websites must comply with a wide set of standards or be subject to legal action. Researching the diverse and growing guidelines can be challenging, but failing to comply with ADA guidelines could turn out to be costly for your business.
