My position is different. I would (and have) documented what the contract
(including published policies such as accessibility and privacy state) and
legal requirements were, followed up with how what the client wants fails to
those requirements. Then if the client is not willing to implement those
requirements we terminate the contract.

In the most recent case it was not complying with HIPPA (healthcare
privacy).

I would like to say a big thank you to every body that has contributed to
this post, it has certainly improved my own knowledge, we have decided on
the following course of action
1) Document our own recommendations and forward to the client (This covers
us legally)
2) Implement there site as they want it
3) Inform the DDA after the work has been completed 
 
personally i would like to set up a site that Names and Shames offending web
sites, as this seems to be a standard within the industry that people are
claiming that there site are access able when clearly they are not 
 
Many Many thanks again
