Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is not a novel concept for the restaurant industry. Since the ADA’s enactment, restaurants have grappled with ways to ensure that they are accessible to individuals with disabilities. The steady shift in our economy from physical brick-and-mortar locations to online web-based commerce, however, has led to an expanded interpretation of the ADA that encompassed not only a business’s physical location, but also its website.
In their article for FSR Magazine, Sutherland attorneys Lewis Wiener and Alexander Fuchs provide insight on how restaurants can ensure their websites are compliant with the ADA in order to avoid costly lawsuits.
