Michael Wippler Authors Article for Retailing Today

Michael Wippler, Office Managing Member of Dykema’s Los Angeles office, authored the article, “What retailers need to know about e-commerce and the ADA,” which appears in Retailing Today.

In the article, Wippler discusses how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is actually much broader than most people think, and how the U.S. Department of Justice and the courts are focusing on making the internet more accessible for the visually impaired.

Wippler points out that while accessibility of websites is not specifically addressed in the ADA or under DOJ regulations, advocates for the visually impaired have long argued that companies are legally obligated to make their websites accessible to the visually impaired.
