COVID-19 And The ADA

Handling COVID-19 under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) creates a compliance nightmare. You need to know if COVID-19 qualifies as a disability under the ADA, your obligations to infected employees, and what reasonable accommodations you must offer.

  • Could COVID-19 constitute a disability?
  • What are your obligations to an employee with COVID-19?
  • Who is a qualified individual with a disability under the ADA/ADAAA?
  • What accommodations do you need to provide to an employee with COVID-19?
  • What interactive process must you follow?
  • May you take employees’ and applicants’ temperatures?
  • May you ask employees if they have symptoms of COVID-19?
  • What constitutes a “direct threat” under the ADA?
