Hawaii State Digital Accessibility Requirements

Ehawaii.gov has been designed to be compatible with a wide variety of browsers, and with assistive technologies in mind. To this end, it conforms to W3C’s “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0”, available at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/, level A. Its goal is to continue to work to make access available to all individuals. Webmasters are currently striving to reach level Double-A compatibility.

Public Accommodation Laws

Under Hawaii law, it is illegal to deny a person access to or to treat them unequally in a place of public accommodation because of that person’s disability.

Violation Penalties

If after the hearing the commission determines there is a violation of the law, the commission will issue a final decision and order to correct any discriminatory practices and to prevent their recurrence. Remedies may include damages, fines, or other remedies appropriate to correct the harm caused by the discrimination, or punitive damages where there is clear and convincing evidence that an accommodation willfully. deliberately, or maliciously violated the law.
