Maryland State Digital Accessibility Requirements

State laws require posting an accessibility policy in the footer of each site, employing universal usability, testing for usability, validating by W3C standards, using contrasting colors, functioning even without images, and other elements that align with Section 508. They also provide a checklist for state agencies to use.

Public Accommodation Laws

An owner, operator, agent, or employee of a place of public accommodation may not refuse, withhold from, or deny any person any accommodations, advantages, facilities, or privileges of the place of public accommodation because of the person’s disability.

Violation Penalties

The court may award the prevailing party punitive damages, equitable relief, or civil penalties of up to $2500, depending on the number of past Civil Rights violations.
