Dykema's 2020 Employer Update, Session 4: ADA Considerations in a Technology-Driven World: Reasonable Accommodations to Website Accessibility and Everything in Between

October 20, 2020

 Dykema’s 2020 Employer Outlook: Analysis of Workplace Challenges and Response to the “New Normal”

Managing a workforce that is increasingly performing job functions from locations other than an employer’s office requires the involvement of human resources personnel who are well-versed in the Americans with Disabilities Act’s (ADA) Title I requirements related to a job’s “essential functions.” HR personnel must have an in-depth understanding of the reasonable accommodations that may be necessary and the analysis of a possible undue burden of accommodations on the business.  Many businesses are unaware, however, of the ADA’s Title III requirements, which have provided a basis for an explosion of litigation by advocacy groups against businesses claiming that their websites are not accessible to individuals with disabilities.  In this webinar, we will address the continually developing law and best practices with respect to employee-related issues under Title I of the ADA, and we will also identify key issues and suggestions so that attendees can identify, evaluate and address potential compliance risks related to website accessibility under Title III of the ADA.
