Credit Union Reps, NAFCU To Participate In ‘Listening Session’ With DOJ On ADA


WASHINGTON—NAFCU and number of its member credit unions will meet at the Department of Justice (DOJ) March 11 for what’s being called a “listening session” on website accessibility requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

During the session, credit unions are invited to share with the DOJ how they have been impacted by ambiguities in the law and what guidance would be helpful.

“While NAFCU and its members strongly support the protections of the ADA, it believes that these efforts are best achieved through clear guidance and standards for website compliance, not through meritless and costly lawsuits,” the trade association said.

Both CUNA and NAFCU have been pressing the Department of Justice and Congress to clear up rules around ADA and website access, with credit unions across the country having faced lawsuits over the issue.
