New PEAT Resource Offers Guidance on Accessible Technology-Related Public Policy
From the Section 508 refresh to progress around Section 501, the regulatory landscape influencing accessible information and communications technology (ICT) is ever evolving. To help employers, employees and technology providers learn about and understand the latest federal regulatory developments, the ODEP-funded Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT) has launched “Policy Matters,” a centralized resource that covers what's happening in the world of accessible technology-related public policy. Featuring plain language articles, policy briefs and analyses, “Policy Matters” explores how key policy developments apply to the workplace – from laws and regulations to court decisions and proposed legislation. The free tool is designed to keep stakeholders informed about government efforts to ensure workplace technology is accessible to all employees – including those with disabilities.
