Legal Requirements for Website Accessibility: Lessons from Case Law (3-26-19)

March 26, 2019 12:30pm to 1:15pm EDT

Presented by TransCen, Inc. and the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center

Join us for the third of a 3 part series, ADA Lessons from Case Law, where we will examine recent court cases as they pertain to different areas of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

When do the websites of public accommodations (businesses that are generally open to the public such as stores, restaurants, movie theaters, schools, day care facilities, recreation facilities, and doctors' offices) need to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act? Are courts across the country coming to different conclusions on this issue? What standards are courts looking to in the absence of the U.S. Department of Justice regulations? What else can courts and settlement agreements tell us about website accessibility? Through an in-depth review of recent court cases and settlement agreements, participants will learn what courts are saying about the ADA’s requirements for website accessibility, including best practices and practical strategies. Note that this webinar is focused on legal issues and will not delve into the technical details on how to create accessible websites.
