Minnesota State Digital Accessibility Requirements

The standard incorporates the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Statutes on public records and continuing education can make agencies financially liable for inaccessible records and other documents and course material modified or produced after that date.

Public Accommodation Laws

It is an unfair discriminatory practice to deny any person the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of a place of public accommodation because of disability, or for a taxicab company to discriminate in the access to, full utilization of, or benefit from service because of a person’s disability

Violation Penalties

Offending parties must pay a civil penalty to the general fund of the state, in addition to compensatory and punitive damages to be paid to an aggrieved party in an amount up to three times the actual damages sustained. The judge may also order the respondent to pay the aggrieved party damages for mental anguish or suffering and reasonable attorney’s fees, in addition to punitive damages up to $25,000.
