ADA Website violations could result in civil penalties up to $110,000.
Does your bank’s website comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)? In the past year the Department of Justice (DOJ), special interest groups, and enterprising law firms have threatened lawsuits against hundreds of banks related to ADA website violations, and filed suits against many – costing community banks like yours thousands of dollars in legal fees and settlements.
For example, if it is found that your bank or credit union website violates title III of the ADA, which relates to “public accommodation,” a federal court may hit your bank with civil penalties of up to $55,000 for the first violation and $110,000 for any subsequent violation.
