Prevent Discrimination Claims - How to Accommodate Disability in Your Workplace

Did you know that in 2020, a staggering 24,324 disability discrimination lawsuits amounted to over 36% of all employment discrimination cases in the United States?

This unprecedented upturn in disability discrimination claims means that employers need a standardized and compliant approach to navigating disability within employment.

As reports of disability discrimination continue to rise, you may find yourself asking, "How do I prevent disability discrimination in my workplace?" and that is the question we will be answering in this month's webinar.
