ADA Website Compliance
The Do’s & Don’ts

03/11/2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm




The do’s and don’ts of ensuring your website is ADA compliant.

Did you know your website can be subject to ADA compliance and could be subject to a lawsuit if found to be out of compliance?  

The Department of Justice (DOJ) published the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design in September 2010. These standards state that all electronic and information technology must be accessible to people with disabilities. This makes your website subject to be compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).  

AmericanHort has been working with industry members who have been recent subjects to legal action by plaintiff lawyers. Make sure you are not the next target! 

Join us for an upcoming webinar to learn more about this topic and the steps you can take to make sure you are not subject to a frivolous lawsuit. 

Jeremy Horelick, Sr. VP of Business Development for ADA Site Compliance, a leading consultant on this topic, will address:  

  • what makes a website accessible
  • why adding widget to your site is NOT a good solution
  • the top tips to make sure your website meets basic standards
  • the current state of these lawsuits
  • what to do if your company is facing litigation
    …and more.
