A free webinar series for individuals with disabilities, parents and professionals to learn from experts and advocates in the autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities field

The University of Illinois Chicago’s Institute on Disability and Human Development, the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities (IL LEND) and the Autism Program of Illinois (TAP) invite you to join “COVID-19 and ADA Employment Rights” on April 20 from 12 – 1 p.m.

COVID-19 has raised many questions, including how it will impact the employment rights of people with disabilities.

Join Equip for Equality’s Vice President for Civil Rights Barry Taylor and Managing Attorney Rachel Weisberg for a discussion that will cover numerous questions, including:

  • Is COVID-19 itself a disability under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)?
  • What are the rights of people with disabilities who are at high risk of severe complications from COVID?
  • What accommodations are available for people with disabilities in the workplace and remotely?
  • Can employers test employees for COVID and/or require COVID vaccinations?
  • What are the employment rights of people who have a family member with a disability?

This webinar will address these issues and more and answer your questions about COVID-19 in the context of employment.
