What's New?

The  U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is considering revising the rules implementing Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The agency is looking at establishing accessibility requirements for online services, programs, and activities provided to the public by state and local governments–including many employment-related tools and resources.

For those wanting to read a more in-depth summary and analysis of the SANPRM before commenting, PEAT has prepared a policy brief that provides an overview of DOJ’s questions and the topics on which they’d like comments from the public. You can submit comments until Monday, August 8, 2016.

Last month’s M-Enabling Summit brought international leaders together from a range of fields connected to the promotion and advancement of accessible mobile applications—and allowed PEAT to advance key actions related to accessible technology issues impacting employment though a policy roundtable and a panel discussion.

Could your company’s social media recruitment practices be inadvertently screening out qualified candidates with disabilities? In our June PEAT Talk, digital marketer Eliza Greenwood discussed the simple steps you can take to ensure that your messaging is reaching a full audience.
