Information on Nondiscrimination, Technology and the Americans with Disabilities Act
May 27, 2022
The Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT) added a new resource to its AI & Disability Inclusion Toolkit. This article talks about nondiscrimination language in the law that employers and employees should know when using technology in the workplace.
Many employers use technologies to review their job applicants and employees. In almost every case, employers must make sure their methods for evaluation are “job-related and consistent with business necessity” for the specific job in question. Employers also cannot require applicants to disclose a disability until after a conditional job offer is made.
