Background – The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities.

The American for Disabilities Act (ADA) is a legal requirement for all businesses who sell directly or indirectly to the Federal Government and is just business practice to not discriminate based on disability.  Businesses are legally required to provide equal access to their goods and services, both online and offline. Non-compliant websites risk facing ADA compliance penalties which can be costly and damaging to a business’s reputation.  The maximum civil penalty for a first-time violation is $75,000, while subsequent violations carry a maximum fine of $150,000.

In addition to civil penalties, businesses may also be required to pay compensatory damages to individuals who have suffered harm as a result of the business’s non-compliance. These damages can include the costs of emotional distress, lost wages, and other expenses incurred by the affected individual.
