Accessibility Policy 


The Mississippi Department of Employment Security (MDES) is committed to providing employees and the public, including individuals with disabilities, access to its web-based information and services. The MDES website is designed for compliance with Priority One of the W3C Guidelines. In addition, MDES is compliant with guidelines in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act that are not covered in W3C Priority One. This site is designed for view in most Internet browsers and browser versions in order to reach the widest audience possible. The pages have been tested in popular screen readers to help assure accessibility. However, since the MDES site provides links to many websites that are not created or maintained by MDES, it is possible that a site reached through our site would not be accessible to persons with disabilities.
