EEOC Pandemic Guidance on Return to Work and Accommodating Disabilities in the Workplace

Printer-friendly version

Speaker:Robin Ross

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended, and the NJ Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) both require employers to accommodate employees with disabilities in the workplace.  Under the current pandemic environment, employers have been acquiring and using medical information to direct self-quarantine and to administer family and sick leave and are now considering complex return to work issues. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued updated guidance for employers navigating the complex issues presented by COVID-19 in the workplace, including workplace accommodation requests, as well as various recommendations to employers as workplaces begin to return to work.

Join Robin Ross for a one-hour webinar to discuss the following:

  • General overview of the accommodation issues under the ADA/NJLAD
  • When must we accommodate?
  • The interactive process
  • Types of reasonable accommodations
  • Determining undue hardship
  • Guidance to employers for employees returning from stay-at-home orders
  • Making medical inquiries and requiring medical examinations
  • Recommended employer screening procedures
  • Medical privacy
