Andrea Kirshenbaum and Darren Creasy Present, "Is Your Website a Place of Public Accommodation?" at HospitalityLaw Conference on Feb. 22
The presentation, "Is Your Website a Place of Public Accommodation?" was made to corporate counsel on Monday, February 22 at HospitalityLawyer's annual conference in Houston, TX.
Places of public accommodation are required by law to ensure “full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations” by the disabled. Nowhere is this more evident than in the hospitality sector, which is probably something Congress had in mind specifically when it passed Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Having considered all the primary points of access to a business' location, however, is it possible the biggest one is missed: the website?
Andrea M. Kirshenbaum's and Darren M. Creasy's presentation:
- Explained why cyberspace is developing into one of the hottest new frontiers in public accommodation law.
- Examined case law and regulatory trends that address this area.
- Considered ways in which hospitality employers can minimize risks of exposure.
