The Gil v. Winn-Dixie Stores ruling in June 2017 has made website accessibility even more important to businesses. Companies and organizations with no accessible websites and mobile apps are at higher risk of running afoul of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). For the past year, there has been a rising trend of website accessibility cases filed against private companies’ websites which allegedly discriminated individuals with disabilities. With the increasing pressure on the Department of Justice (DOJ) to issue clear and defined website accessibility rules, legal requirements are on the horizon.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help businesses understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the anticipated ADA New Compliance Guidelines in light of the Gil v. Winn-Dixie Stores ruling. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing ADA-compliant websites.
Key topics include:
• The Gil v. Winn-Dixie Stores Ruling
• Recent Trends in Website Accessibility Cases
• ADA New Compliance Guidelines – Outlook
• Risks and Pitfalls
• Best Compliance Practices
