ADA Website Litigation

Our Position

NAFCU and its members strongly support the protections of the ADA and fully support efforts to ensure individuals with disabilities are not discriminated against and have equal access to vital financial services. However, costly lawsuits against well-intentioned credit unions exploiting an unsettled area of law take dollars out of the hands of credit union member-owners. NAFCU is fully engaging with Congress, state Attorneys General, and the DOJ on this issue, encouraging clear guidance and standards for website compliance to combat meritless lawsuits. In addition, NAFCU continues to support the credit union industry and has filed numerous amicus briefs across the country.
