HR Works COVID-19 Update: Employers Beware; Online Accessibility Lawsuits Are on the Rise

With the mass migration toward working from home, more employees are depending on digital devices and the Internet for essential information for everything both in and out of work. Yet, many websites, services, and digital tools are not accessible to people with disabilities. That may mean your employees are having difficulty completing their work. Meanwhile, your liabilities are increasing rapidly.

We are pleased to have with us employment attorney Conner Eversole (https://www.hallestill.com/our-team/conner-eversole) to discuss this important issue today. Conner is an attorney at the national law firm Hall Estill (https://www.hallestill.com/) in corporate law. He’s been helping businesses navigate the growing issue to help them comply with digital guidelines under the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Please check back next week when we’ll discuss proposed legislation that is designed to make online accessiblity lawsuits largely vanish for employers.
