This 60 minute webinar presents a concise, yet comprehensive, review and analysis of the cutting edge issue concerning a place of public accommodation’s legal obligation to provide an accessible website for the disabled under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  In the last year, many businesses have received lawyers' letters and court complaints claiming that their websites are not accessible and, given the novel nature of these claims, businesses have needed answers on the legal merits of these claims and how to respond to them.  This webinar fulfills these needs and should be invaluable for businesses to develop a plan to address this legal risk and to implement an effective strategy in response to receiving lawyer’s letters or court complaints alleging that their websites are not accessible in violation of Title III of the ADA.  The webinar addresses the following topics:

  • Overview of Title III obligations for businesses;
  • Whether Title III applies to websites;
  • Split in court decision on website accessibility under Title III;
  • Title III coverage for businesses that exist only online;
  • Department of Justice enforcement activity concerning website accessibility;
  • Department of Justice regulatory activity concerning website accessibility;
  • Preparing for “Surf-By” lawsuits;
  • Website accessibility standards (WCAG 2.0 and Section 508);
  • Addressing pre-litigation demand letters from plaintiffs lawyers.
