Bloomberg BNA Electronic Commerce & Law Report

Joshua A. Stein, a Member of the Firm in the Labor and Employment practice, in the firm’s New York office, was quoted by Bloomberg BNA Electronic Commerce & Law Report, in “Lawsuits Mount Over Website Accessibility,” by Alexis Kramer.

Following is an excerpt:

The uncertain environment has put businesses in a predicament. Most websites are still predominantly inaccessible because businesses have been waiting to see what the regulations will be before expending resources to make their websites accessible, Joshua Stein, a member of the firm at Epstein Becker & Green PC in New York told Bloomberg BNA Nov. 25.

“When technology and society advance faster than the Department of Justice can issue regulations, businesses are trapped in a position as to how they should provide their services in an accessible manner,” Stein said. “And the plaintiffs in these cases are exploiting this gray area and the gap in the law between the ADA's broad mandate and the delayed regulations.”
