Doj Ada Settlement Agreements

DOJ is one of the main federal authorities that manages and imposes the ADA. They have implemented a number of rules since 1991 and in 2003 published guidelines on the accessibility of state and municipal websites for people with disabilities. Since February 2020, the DOJ has concluded 175 comparative agreements on ICT accessibility. These agreements allow employers and other covered organizations (e.g. B, public and local authorities and public housing) to understand the DOJ`s priorities regarding website accessibility and ICT accessibility and to understand how existing rules and guidelines can be proactively adhered to. Although DJ counts only apply to stakeholders, they provide insight into possible actions that DOJ could take in similar situations.
