If your business falls under the physical ADA law such as stores, restaurants, hotels, movie theaters, museums, and doctor’s offices, etc. It now falls under the website accessibility law as an extension of the business.
All other businesses currently fall under the Human Rights Act, which stipulates any person deserves access to public venues, and all websites are public. So even if you're a sole proprietor in the service sector, you can easily get sued.
