Wisconsin State Digital Accessibility Requirements

The State of Wisconsin accessibility policy requires sites to meet a set of accessibility requirements based on Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act.

Public Accommodation Laws

State law generally prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodation and amusement because of disability.

Violation Penalties

Defendants found to have discriminated against a person with disabilities will be charged between $100-$1,000 for a first violation and up to $10,000 for subsequent violations within five years.

Plaintiffs, including the state, alleging a violation of public accommodation discrimination may bring a civil action for appropriate injunctive relief, for damages including punitive damages and, in the case of a prevailing plaintiff, for court costs and reasonable attorney fees.
