On June 12, 2023, the California Assembly’s Judiciary Committee amended Assembly Bill (AB) 1757, introducing language that would effectively require all California websites to follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA.
The law could profoundly change the legal landscape.
By requiring conformance with WCAG 2.1, the bill would establish firm technical requirements for website accessibility — but it would also allow plaintiffs to sue third-party developers that create noncompliant apps and websites.
Below, we’ll address some of the important features of AB 1757. First, a quick reminder: Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), all websites and mobile apps must be accessible for people with disabilities.
