COVID-19 has raised many questions, including how it will impact the workplace. In this webinar, numerous issues will be discussed, including:

  • Is COVID-19 a disability under the ADA?
  • What accommodations are available for people with disabilities when returning to work?
  • What if a person cannot wear a face covering due to a disability?
  • Other than the ADA, what other laws are relevant for people with disabilities and their family members?

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