ADA litigation targeting banking websites is a real concern for the banking industry, including small banks and community credit unions.
Did you know that if your bank or credit union website violates title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Department of Justice may obtain civil penalties of up to $55,000 for the first violation and $110,000 for any subsequent violation? Don't be caught unprepared! Make sure your banking website meets reasonable levels of accessibility compliance. Not only will you reduce your risk and avoid costly litigation—but more importantly, there are many benefits for your customers with a range of disabilities. What can you do?
