Since 2017, when several federal courts held that websites selling goods and services to the public fell under Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), there has been a cascade of plaintiff-side class action litigation concerning companies’ websites. These lawsuits generally assert that the defendant’s website is not fully accessible to visually and/or hearing-impaired users and therefore violates the ADA by excluding these individuals from the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations being offered.
Being named as a defendant in such a suit is entirely avoidable – if your company takes the necessary steps to protect itself.
Joshua Levin-Epstein, the managing partner of Levin-Epstein, P.C., co-founded ADA Compliance LLC to provide the optimal compliance solution for companies seeking to mitigate risk of an expensive lawsuit.
ADA Compliance LLC compliance evaluation capacity is distinguished by its process – a process that is grounded in using software to evaluate your company’s website against the most current legal and regulatory framework. The result is an evaluation report that is reliable, intelligible, and mitigates litigation risk.
