The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law in 1990 with a focus of removing physical barriers to businesses for disabled Americans. However, we are in a digital age, a growing number of business are online. In 2017, the Federal Court in Gil v. Winn Dixie, extended the definition of "public accommodations" to include websites. That ruling opened the flood gates to ADA website accessibility cases. In 2020, a increasing number of businesses will be moving to a digital platform in response to the "new normal" set into motion by the Covid-19 pandemic. This course will discuss, among other things, what is considered a "public accommodation" for purposes of determining if a business is covered by the ADA and how to avoid costly ADA compliance litigation.
