(Re)opening the Workplace – COVID-19 and the ADA

What is it they used to say BC (Before COVID-19)? In the Spring, a young heart turns to love? Or baseball? Something like that. But today we are faced with a new reality and, as the days get longer and vaccines enter arms by the thousands, many of us are a whole different kind of excited:

It’s back to work(place) time! Isn’t it?

Ah, if it were only that easy! Truth is, like most flavors of employee absence, bringing ‘em all back has some considerations and flat-out hurdles. Questions abound:

  • When is the right time to bring employees back, and how?
  • If I’ve had a skeleton crew of “essential workers,” I should be good to go, right?
  • Can I mandate vaccination as a prerequisite to employees returning to the workplace?
  • Is COVID considered a disability?

And so much more. Join me and my longtime colleague Cheryl Jez, Disability Practice Leader at Reliance Standard Life Insurance Company, for a free webinar on the legal hurdles, worksite safety challenges and a handful of other ways COVID could ruin ANOTHER year if you’re not careful.
