What changes have you made to meet increasing regulatory compliance and protect against litigation?

At Eileen Fisher, accommodations for those with disabilities is taken very seriously, and those accommodations are strictly adhered to as outlined by ADA.

All of our displays follow guidelines set forth by the ADA. This may include a display’s proximity to the floor and measures taken to allow freedom of movement with respect to wheelchair-bound and visually impaired clients.  As prescribed by the ADA, displays that are between 27 inches and 80 inches off the floor must be 4 inches off the walkway to allow for the visually impaired to easily walk past. It is sometimes difficult to translate the terminology as laid out by the ADA because the language of the regulation can sometimes be unclear. The legal jargon can be confusing. Making matters worse, regulations vary depending on the type of signage being used. It’s also important to remember that the laws vary from state to state.

While there are a multitude of requirements and compliance with regards to digital signage, a priority for Eileen Fisher is making the lives of those with disabilities as easy as possible.  One way to do this is to abide by the laws set forth by the ADA.
