  • The ADA in the Workplace: Recognizing and Resisting Discrimination

    February 10, 2021  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

    How does the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA") apply to employment? How can legal professionals use the ADA as a tool to protect employees in the workplace?

Answers to these questions and more will be addressed by our expert panelists who have experience in applying the ADA in creative ways to address accessibility problems in the workplace and the legal profession.
