Pillars of Law and Information at the United States Supreme Court

In the Credit Union Times article Credit Unions: Mitigate Risks as ADA Suits Mount, author Tina Orem reports that the "number of credit unions hit with lawsuits in recent weeks over the accessibility of their websites continued to climb into double digits, and experts warned that even more credit unions could become targets if they don't get up to speed on the issue."

More from Tina Orem:

"According to the lawsuits, that discrimination includes failing to do things such as embed code that allows screen readers to vocalize descriptions of graphics on websites. Without those efforts, visually impaired users can't determine what's on a credit union's site and in turn can't browse a site, look for locations, learn about amenities or determine which branch to visit. The complaints also claimed the credit unions’ sites contained redundant links that created repetition for screen readers and were missing form labels."

Credit unions that want to avoid becoming targets of ADA suits can do a few things, according to the pros. Find out what you need to do at http://www.cutimes.com/2017/10/27/mitigate-risks-as-ada-suits-mount.
