Your company’s website is a vital way to keep in touch with your customers, but it can also get your company in trouble if it isn’t designed correctly. Around the country, plaintiff’s lawyers are suing private companies for having websites that are inaccessible to people with disabilities. Civil rights laws like the ADA require that businesses offer people with disabilities the same access to content and information as everyone else- and failing to do so can result in serious fines and penalties. This webinar will arm participants with the information they need to avoid liability and prepare for the future. It will be presented by Ken Nakata, a former Senior Trial Attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice and who has specialized in accessibility for the last 24 years. Every employer needs to be aware of the new rule and how it will affect the LBM sector.
