Delaware State Digital Accessibility Requirements

Delaware is striving to comply with all applicable accessibility regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The State of Delaware is committed to following the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1 Levels A and AA standards). It is also firmly dedicated to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Titles II and III, Section 504 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title 6, Section 4504 of the Delaware Code, and other applicable accessibility laws.

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.
