Delaware State Digital Accessibility Requirements

The Delaware.gov Web Portal was constructed to comply with the accessibility guidelines developed through the Web Accessibility Initiatives developed by the World Wide Web Consortium. This Portal has achieved Level A compliance with the WAI’s accessibility guidelines. This means all priority 1 checkpoints—and in many cases more rigorous priority 2 checkpoints—were adhered to in its construction. All agencies receiving federal funding are required to comply with Section 508 standards.

Public Accommodation Laws

No person being the owner, lessee, proprietor, manager, director, supervisor, superintendent, agent, or employee of any place of public accommodation, may directly or indirectly refuse, withhold from, or deny to any person, on account of disability any of the accommodations, facilities, advantages, or privileges thereof. It is also unlawful to directly or indirectly publish, issue, circulate, post, or display any communication, notice, or advertisement that suggests the patronage of those with disabilities is in any way unwanted, unwanted, or unsolicited.

Violation Penalties

The plaintiff may recover actual damages suffered, court costs and legal fees, and injunctive or equitable relief. To vindicate public interest, the human rights panel may assess a civil penalty against the respondent to be paid to the Special Administration Fund of up to $25,000, depending on whether the respondent has been charged with previous offenses.
