Alaska State Digital Accessibility Requirements
The state of Alaska is committed to serving all Alaskans and is using Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1, Level AA as a guide to improve content and services to make its websites more accessible for everyone.
Public Accommodation Laws
It is unlawful for the owner, lessee, manager, agent, or employee of public accommodation to refuse, withhold from, or deny to a person any of its services, goods, facilities, advantages, or privileges because of physical or mental disability. It is also unlawful to publish, circulate, issue, display, post, or mail a written or printed communication, notice, or advertisement that states or implies that patronage by persons with disabilities is in any way discouraged, unwanted, or unwelcome.
Violators are guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction by a court of competent jurisdiction, punishable by a fine of not more than $500, or by imprisonment in jail for not more than 30 days, or both.
