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 the e-commerce business.

Many nonprofit and for-profit organizations have already been sued and have had to settle according to the Florida Retail Federation. Failure to comply with Section 508  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 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.
