It is the law! ADA-compliant websites are included under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Taking proactive steps to ensure your external and internal website, as well as the candidate experience, can mitigate risk of potential legal action. While Federal law may still be ambiguous, civil law has been clear on this matter. Many companies have faced a lawsuit or fine for non-compliance.

ADA compliance is a federal issue. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that 19 percent of the U.S. population had a disability in 2012. Failure to adhere to the regulations may result in fines, lawsuits, and a tarnished reputation.
