Does online ADA Compliance apply to your business? We had a webinar so our Compliance & AI expert could educate us on how to avoid rapidly growing legal actions.
Do You Understand the Implications of ADA Compliance for Your Website and Dealership?
ADA compliance for websites has been confusing for many dealerships and completely off the radar for others. There is no single decisive federal requirement, guidance on compliance or fixed penalties, so it can be hard to comprehend. Most tend to believe it doesn’t apply to them or that their business isn’t big enough to be impacted. Neither of those ideas are accurate.
The most important thing to know is that there is a continually growing tide of legal action taking place regarding website ADA accessibility. This stems partially from the US Supreme Court’s rejection of hearing a lower court decision regarding the ADA. The Circuit Court found that websites must be treated as 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. Lawyers are catching onto the revenue potential of pursuing ADA cases: more legal demand letters to companies (and dealerships) of all sizes are being issued every day.
What is Required for ADA Website Compliance?
Websites must comply with a wide set of standards, or they’ll be subject to legal action. Remediation can be challenging because there are so many factors involved and researching the diverse and growing guidelines is not simple. However, ADA compliance is becoming the standard and those who fail to comply with it will be hit with significant legal costs.
