That is SO last week

Last week, The Washington Post covered Facebook’s Empathy Lab and described how the social media giant works to ensure that its sites are accessible for individuals with disabilities.  On the heels of Uber’s “bug” that prevented blind customers from using the popular ride-sharing app, the Facebook coverage highlighted the need for all tech companies – particularly those in the HR tech industry – to focus on accessibility. Employers’ systems, including those parts used to hire and manage employees, must be accessible, or the employer must provide reasonable accommodations.
