Employment Law This Week (Episode 77: Week of June 26, 2017) has released bonus footage of its interview with Joshua A. Stein, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.
As Mr. Stein discusses, the verdict is in: Winn-Dixie must make its website accessible. A visually impaired individual sued the grocery chain because his screen reader could not process the store locator and coupon sections of the chain’s website. In what is believed to be the first federal decision on website accessibility, a district court judge in Florida found that Winn-Dixie violated Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act by not providing a fully accessible public website. He ordered the grocery chain to make the entire website accessible, even sections that may be run by a third party.
