ABOUT THE EVENT
Not only is the ADA complicated but when you add COVID-19 into the mix it becomes a compliance nightmare for employers. So many questions that your HR department has to navigate daily such as whether COVID-19 is even a disability under the ADA.
If it is a disability, would it always qualify as a disability or only when it is considered to be “substantially limiting” an individual in a major life activity? Once an employee has COVID-19 if you determine it does in their case qualify as a disability, what are your responsibilities for compliance with the ADA? Would you be required to allow a COVID-19 positive patient to work from home or take a leave of absence under the ADA? The answers to these questions will be provided in this webinar by an expert in employment law, Melissa Fleischer, Esq.
