ADA Compliance

On March 18th, 2022 the Department of Justice (DOJ) issued guidance on ADA guidelines pertaining to web platforms. Though this isn’t the first discussion on ADA rules for websites, it is certainly the first time formal guidance on ADA requirements for commercial sites has been presented.

Given that the DOJ has now provided official guidance that business websites should adhere to particular accessibility criteria, Digital Impact is convinced that there will be a surge in legal actions tied to non-adherence.

What industries are most impacted?

Having an accessible website should be a high priority in today’s legal climate. The biggest factor driving this need has been the increase in web accessibility lawsuits.

Over the past 2 years, it has been primarily small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that have been hit with thousands of lawsuits and demand letters relating to website accessibility. This increase in cases has triggered an alarm for SMBs and even prompted the National Retail Federation to issue a warning to businesses urging them to start taking web accessibility seriously.

Every industry must comply with web accessibility regulations, yet not all fields have been affected equally. Here are some industries that are at risk of being affected the most:
