The Americans with Disabilities Act ensures everyone can enjoy equal access to employment, patronize businesses, and enjoy public facilities regardless of their physical or medical status. Unfortunately bad actors can target well-meaning businesses with frivolous lawsuits under the ADA that can cost your business thousands of dollars in settlements, legal fees, and lost time and productivity.
This fight has increasingly moved online in recent years, with businesses being targeted specifically for their websites.
The Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce will be putting together an ADA compliance webinar with one of their board members, Beth Schroeder, attorney with Raines Feldman. Beth will explain how to protect your business from an ADA website lawsuit before it’s too late.
Thursday August 19th | 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Please consider reviewing this handy checklist, which was developed for state and local governments to ensure their websites are compliant: https://www.ada.gov/pcatoolkit/chap5toolkit.htm
