Website Accessibility Compliance Under ADA and FHA (Free Webinar)

Wednesday, June 29, 2022
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (CDT)

Event Details

Since mid-2017, there has been an uptick in the number of lawsuits filed against companies operating consumer-facing websites under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), alleging that the websites do not provide appropriate accommodations for those with vision or hearing disabilities. More recently, we are seeing an increase in website accessibility lawsuits asserting claims under the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA).

On March 18, 2022, the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the first time released guidance on website accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act, explaining how state and local governments (entities covered by Title II of the ADA) and places of public accommodation (entities covered by Title III of the ADA) can ensure that their websites are accessible to people with disabilities.

Join NAA for an engaging and informative webinar as we navigate the website accessibility legal landscape and DOJ's guidance.

This webinar features discussions on

  • Website accessibility lawsuits
  • A framework to assess your company’s exposure
  • Website accessibility compliance under the FHA and ADA and DOJ's guidance
  • roactive steps to mitigate future risk
