As CUNA continues to push for solutions to credit unions facing legal threats on website accessibility under the Americans With Disabilities Act, it has launched an advocacy page outlining the current situation and steps CUNA is taking. Credit unions are facing increased legal threats due to confusion over website compliance with the ADA. CUNA has been working with the Department of Justice and Congress to solve the issue.
“Credit unions are victims of predatory litigation and frivolous demand letters. Credit unions exist to serve their members, so clearly they take every effort to make sure they’re accessible to all of their members. This kind of predatory activity threatens credit unions’ ability to serve their members,” said CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan. “We’re taking a 360 degree approach to this critical problem, pursuing legislative, regulatory and, if necessary, judicial remedies.”
