When the ADA was enacted in 1990, the internet had not yet become such an important part of people’s lives, including the lives of people with disabilities. Now that the internet is such an integral tool for businesses, employers and governmental entities, courts have been grappling with how the ADA applies to websites and other digital information. This issue has become even more acute as a result of [the] pandemic, and people with disabilities are using online services more than ever. This webinar will review the different legal theories courts have applied for the ADA and the internet, discuss the most recent case law analyzing this issue, and provide updates on positions taken by the Department of Justice. Don’t miss this session so that you’ll be up to date on the latest legal developments related to the ADA and digital accessibility.
