Protect Yourself from ADA Lawsuits Webinar

June 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

We have heard from numerous Family Winemakers of CA wineries that they recently received demand letters regarding regarding the accessibility of their websites to the blind and visually impaired under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  As you have probably heard, the ADA does not clearly discuss website access, but the act does make it illegal for any public or private entity to provide goods and services to the public that are not also accessible to individuals with disabilities. In the lawsuits regarding website access, the plaintiffs are claiming that disability-based discrimination that applies to a place of “public accommodation” also applies to a website that may also advertise to that same place.

To learn more about this issue and actions to mitigate risk, FWC is hosting a webinar on Thursday, June 6 at 10-11:00am PST. The webinar will be conducted by Kristina Launey, Partner at Seyfarth Shaw LLC, a full service law firm which specializes in ADA issues. 

Please register here to participate. Details on how to participate to follow for those that sign up.

Following the presentation, FWC will provide those slides to our members upon request.
