NAFCU raises ADA lawsuit concerns

NAFCU Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Hunt wrote the National Association of Attorneys General yesterday to bring attention to the lack of guidance for website accessibility under the American with Disabilities Act.

Credit unions, banks and other entities have faced a rash of lawsuits in the past year.

Hunt requested that the NAAG look into the issue and join NAFCU in urging the Department of Justice to issue clear guidance on ADA website accessibility requirements in order to prevent unnecessary litigation.
