Third Thursday Webinar: Website Accessibility and Other Developments in ADA Compliance and Litigation

May 23, 2019 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EDT)

Please join us for the next edition of Third Thursday – Crowell & Moring’s Labor and Employment Update, a webinar series dedicated to helping our clients stay on top of developing law and emerging compliance issues.

Employers continue to be challenged in maintaining an effective ADA compliance program. ADA concerns, such as responding to requests for accommodation, often present complex human resources and employment law issues. Navigating the relationship between the ADA and various paid and unpaid leave entitlements remains a burden.

Employers face new challenges in response to a series of recent class action lawsuits filed by individuals with disabilities, alleging that their online employment applications are not accessible. A flood of other, related lawsuits allege a litany of claims under Title III of the ADA. Most of these cases have been brought by blind and deaf individuals who allege that company-sponsored websites are “places of accommodation” under the ADA, and thus subject to additional obligations beyond the employment law requirements of Title I.

During this webinar, our panel will discuss recent updates to the law under the ADA for employers and will also address best practices for reasonable accommodations to employees and litigation strategies when claims are raised.

This webinar is scheduled for May 23, 2019, at 12:00 pm Eastern. We hope that you can join us and participate in a lively discussion of these issues.
