Overview

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is intended to “prohibit[] discrimination and guarantee[] that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life -- to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services.”  Title III of the ADA requires public accommodation businesses (restaurants, movie theaters, professional offices, hotels, etc.,) to provide accommodations to people with disabilities so they can have the same level of access to goods and services as everyone else, including business websites and mobile apps.

ADA website compliance lawsuits continue to be filed against businesses large and small, at ever greater rates, including the increasingly popular class action lawsuit.  What can be done to stem the tide and how can businesses and organizations successfully navigate these legal landmines? Expert faculty will discuss the rapidly shifting landscape of ADA website compliance lawsuits and address:

  • The ADA website class action lawsuit and settlement terms (25 minutes);
  • The current Circuit split on websites as public accommodations (20 minutes); and
  • Department of Justice enforcement of website accessibility (15 minutes).
