ADA Website Accessibility

Impact

Credit unions across the country have been threatened with predatory litigation from certain plaintiffs' law firms seeking to profit from ambiguities in requirements for website accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While the ADA is important and necessary for the well-being of those protected by it, plaintiffs' lawyers are exploiting compliance ambiguities to the detriment of all credit unions members.

Where We Stand

Due to the absence of clear standards, CUNA and the Leagues are seeking to resolve this matter at the Department of Justice and with the support of Congress.

CUNA has filed amicus briefs in cases across the country and recently secured a victory in the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.

CUNA's compliance department has also been providing resources for credit unions and members.
