The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that all websites must be accessible to people with disabilities, and recent legal updates are making it crucial for businesses to ensure ADA compliance as soon as possible.
In August 2023, the DOJ published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that defines specific requirements and technical standards for accessible websites. Once the public comment and revision period is complete, this type of lawmaking will make it easier for attorneys to prove when a website is inaccessible, putting your business at risk if your website is not currently ADA compliant. Fines have been averaging $20,000 – $50,000.
Navigating this subject can be confusing and overwhelming, leaving many businesses unsure of where to begin in making their websites accessible. To provide clarity and help safeguard your website against potential legal consequences, we’re hosting a free educational seminar for businesses in the Knox/Blount County area on “ADA Website Compliance: Why You Need an Accessible Website in 2024”.
This event will be held on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the Blount Chamber in Maryville, TN. Leading the presentation is Gavin Baker, President and Founder of Baker Marketing Laboratory, our Knoxville marketing and website design agency specializing in the healthcare industry. Breakfast and refreshments will be provided.
