    Americans with Disabilities Act - New Regulations Coming Soon

    We are all familiar with the Americans with Disabilities Act and how it impacts physical locations.  If you have wondered why this doesn’t apply to the web - Get ready!  New regulations are on the works for 2018, you should encourage your company and your network to get a head start or risk hefty legal bills.

    This article has been provided by REEA Member Karel Murray, DREI as she felt “It is an important topic when presenting to your Real Estate community as they will certainly be marketing to the masses that include handicap/disabilities”. Karel goes on to say, “Particularly, with businesses that are public accommodating, government run or such will have the closest scrutiny when this becomes more defined and mandated. For now, the WWW has been an evolving system with best practices coming to light as interest and use have grown and continues to grow.”

    Read the article linked here, Website accessibility regulations delayed until 2018 but businesses should not table the issue until then for more information, share your thoughts with your fellow REEA members and how your company is protecting themselves.
