August 2021 - Why the ADA’s Guidance on Long COVID Is Significant

Even though the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has yet to address long (chronic) COVID and workers, recently issued Americans with Disabilities Act guidance could create opportunities for employees with long-hauler symptoms to seek accommodation.  The ADA guidance notes that long COVID can be a disability in certain circumstances.
