COVID-19 Deep Dive Series: Accommodating “Vulnerable Employees” and Others in the COVID-19 Workplace

Presented by David L. Barron, Walter M. Stella, and Jennifer Taylor Williams at Cozen O'Connor
Hosted by Cozen O'Connor

Engaging in the ADA-required interactive process has long challenged employers in all industries and will continue to do so through the lens of COVID-19. This week’s deep dive will cover everything employers need to know about evaluating current accommodations, granting future accommodation requests, and adherence with administrative agency guidance, along with other important topics.

• Best practices for compliance with interim (and possibly changing) guidance from CDC and EEOC
• Important state and local variations on an employer’s responsibility for accommodations
• Suggestions for implementing alternative and/or temporary accommodations
• Legal update on potential interplay between “regarded as” and “reasonable”

CLE is approved in PA, NY, TX, IL, and CA. All other jurisdictions will be applied for upon request.
