Lawsuit: Eeboo Discrimination Case Report

Eeboo Corporation Sued for Discrimination Against Visually Impaired Individuals

Imagine not being able to access a website because of a disability. For visually impaired individuals, this is a harsh reality when it comes to Eeboo Corporation's website, eeboo.com. Tonimarie Rhone, the plaintiff, has taken a stand against Eeboo's discriminatory practices by filing a class-action lawsuit on behalf of herself and others similarly situated. The suit alleges that Eeboo's website is not fully accessible to visually impaired individuals, violating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In this article, we will delve into the details of the case and explain why Eeboo's actions are unacceptable.

What did Eeboo do wrong?

Eeboo's website, eeboo.com, is not designed to be accessible to visually impaired individuals who rely on screen readers to access web content. According to the lawsuit, the website lacks alt-text for images, has inadequate color contrast, and does not provide a way for screen readers to bypass unnecessary links. These issues make it impossible for visually impaired individuals to navigate the website and access the information and services available.

How Eeboo's Actions Affect Visually Impaired Individuals

Eeboo's actions have a significant impact on visually impaired individuals who are trying to access their website. By not designing their website to be accessible, Eeboo is essentially excluding these individuals from accessing information and services that are available to everyone else. This can have serious consequences, including:

  • Difficulty accessing product information: Visually impaired individuals may not be able to access product descriptions, prices, or reviews, making it difficult for them to make informed purchasing decisions.
  • Inability to access educational resources: Eeboo's website may contain educational resources, such as blog posts or videos, that are inaccessible to visually impaired individuals. This denies them the opportunity to learn and grow.
  • Limited job opportunities: Eeboo's inaccessible website may prevent visually impaired individuals from applying for jobs or accessing job listings, limiting their employment opportunities.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities, including visually impaired individuals. The ADA requires that all public websites and mobile apps be accessible to individuals with disabilities. This means that websites must be designed to work with assistive technologies, such as screen readers, and provide equal access to information and services.

Eeboo's failure to design their website to be accessible to visually impaired individuals is a clear violation of the ADA. The lawsuit seeks a permanent injunction to force changes to the website to make it more accessible and compensation for affected parties.
