ADA Compliance Development & Monitoring

Why My Organization Needs To Be ADA Compliant?

The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed in 1990, long before e-commerce became part of everyday life. Most people think of the ADA as applying to brick and mortar stores. However, now that consumers have moved online, the Department of Justice (DOJ) is redefining how the ADA applies to e-commerce business.

Many nonprofit and non-profit organizations have already been sued and have had to settle according to the Florida Retail Federation. Failure to comply with Section 508 of the Department of Justice's ADA (American with Disabilities Act) Standards for Accessible Design could expose your company to hefty fines, the risk of expensive criminal and civil litigation as well as a reputation for being unfriendly to the disabled.

Websites who do not meet WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standards can be fined up to $50,000 for a first violation and $100,000 for a second, and even more for compensation of damages.
