ADA Lawsuits Bring Websites Under Fire – Webinar

Event Date: February 22, 2017

Scores of companies, financial institutions, and other entities across the country have been targeted by plaintiffs’ attorneys for purported violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) because their websites have “access barriers” for individuals with visual impairments. From demand letters to lawsuits, these plaintiffs’ attorneys are crawling the web for unsuspecting businesses with websites that fail to meet the U.S. Department of Justice-endorsed standards, under the theory that these “places of public accommodation” are violating the ADA.

In this webinar, we will discuss how your company can take appropriate preventative measures to mitigate the risk of a costly ADA lawsuit. CGWG Attorney Abtin Mehdizadegan will provide an overview of the following items:

  • Current case studies
  • Summary of ADA requirements
  • Introduction of WCAG 2 website guidelines
  • Suggested practices for institutions
  • Website oversight and management
  • Website auditing
