Although legal requirements can sometimes feel burdensome to employers, on the accessibility front they can be very helpful. The relevant federal laws and regulations, such as "Section 508" and the "21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act" (CVAA) provide helpful and detailed information about technical standards that employers can use to guide their use and procurement of technology that is accessible to all users, including people with disabilities.

If you're a person with a disability and a user of technology, you are in a powerful position to help shape the accessibility of your current or future workplace. Join PEAT’s guest speakers to learn how to advocate for the adoption and promotion of accessible technology and why accessibility matters in the workplace.
Building, buying, and adopting accessible workplace technology is a smart business strategy for employers—but don't just take our word for it. As part of PEAT's commitment to dialogue and industry collaboration, we're constantly on the lookout for employer experiences and exemplary practices that we can share with our users.
