Trends and Updates on EEOC: Navigating Compliance Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic
Recording Available: Thursday, October 01, 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact workplace situations in the U.S., the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently released guidance to clarify employers’ growing concern on the application of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other EEOC laws. It includes guidance on reasonable accommodation for employees who are returning to work and at risk of COVID-19, as well as a definitive advice in dealing with COVID-19-related discrimination and harassment. The EEOC also warned employers about any unequal treatment of employees in granting flexible work arrangements.
The guidance can significantly help employers implement strategies and best practices to efficiently navigate the effect of COVID-19 in the workplace. Thus, they must keep themselves abreast of all updates to maintain workplace and employee safety. They must also revisit their programs and practices to ensure compliance.
