Lawsuits against developers, owners and operators of websites, apps, portals and devices for alleged discriminatory and “inaccessible” technology continue to evolve and explode in jurisdictions across the country in 2019. The health industry has been particularly hard-hit, and the National Federation of the Blind’s lawsuit against Epic and a related hospital was the highest-profile case towards the end of 2018. In this webinar, we:
- Described what “accessibility” means on legal, technical and human levels
- Summarized how courts are applying the ADA and other anti-discrimination laws to websites, apps, HR portals, “virtual” spaces and connected devices/Internet of Things
- Described practical measures to improve accessibility and reduce risk
- Provided clauses and tips for vendor/developer contracts
