Description:

Is your organization’s website fully accessible to disabled individuals? If it’s not, you could be subjected to costly legal scrutiny, as lawsuits challenging inaccessible websites proliferate and the Department of Justice is in the process of issuing website accessibility standards.

Some federal circuit courts of appeal have already ruled that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to e-commerce and websites offering goods and services unconnected to a physical place. This raises the issue of what businesses should do to ensure that their websites, as places of public accommodation, are ADA accessible.

Website accessibility is especially important for the job application process. The ADA requires employers to ensure that job applicants and employees with disabilities can fully participate in the workplace, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has interpreted this requirement to include computer and website accessibility.

So, how can you tell if your website is fully accessible and how it could be better optimized to ensure that it’s available and functional for anyone who visits the site?

Join us when a panel of skilled employment attorneys and website accessibility design experts will present a comprehensive virtual workshop on emerging legal risks companies like yours now face. You’ll also learn more about HR’s role in conducting a website accessibility audit to determine whether it meets or misses the mark concerning your recruiting and other employment practices.

This half-day virtual workshop will explain:

  • Legal risks concerning website accessibility in recruitment, hiring, and other employment practices
  • HR’s role in a website accessibility audit to identify trouble spots, make corrections, and minimize legal risks
  • How the latest advances in assistive technology can be used to correct design flaws and master website accessibility challenges


You’ll learn:
  • The latest updates from the DOJ, EEOC, and other federal agencies on website accessibility—and the practical impact new developments have on your organization’s legal risks
  • Examples of well designed—and poorly designed—company careers pages and other employment resources to illustrate how to spot your own website accessibility issues that could spark legal liability
  • Fundamental website design principles that HR should understand so you can properly communicate with IT and website developers concerning optimization of your recruitment, hiring, and other employment-related website features

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
