Social Media, Disabilities, and Employment Protections

Wednesday, November 14, 2012


This webinar will explore the interaction between the rights of people with disabilities in the workplace and the growing influence of social media. With millions of Americans using social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter to share information, the relations among applicants, employers, and employees are changing rapidly. What protections remain for people with disabilities as the line between private and public information becomes increasingly blurred? Our presenters will tackle these emerging issues and predict how the legal landscape may continue to change.
