People with disabilities face many challenges in employment. Antidiscrimination laws are continually evolving and new issues are coming to the fore. Learning about, understanding, and applying information about these laws and changes is difficult, even for those trained in the language and the logic of the law. Steven Mendelsohn - Attorney, Advocate, and Author of People with Disabilities and Employment Law: Recent Developments, Emerging Issues, And What They Mean In Everyday Life - will discuss how people with disabilities can benefit from information about key recent developments in the law and from analysis of their practical implications in everyday life.
