“Addressing Employee Safety Concerns and Accommodation Requests Related to COVID-19”

With states beginning to reopening or having reopened in the wake of a global pandemic, employers are planning and preparing for a safe return to the workplace. As part of that process, employers should take all reasonable (and required) steps available to help ensure the safety of employees under the circumstances. Kutak Rock’s Employment Law Chair Marcia Washkuhn will examine the EEOC’s COVID-19 guidance and process related to employees who may be entitled to reasonable accommodations, as well as possible accommodations to eliminate or reduce risk to COVID-19. Marcia will also share the importance of planning for accommodation requests and what to do when at-risk employees don’t request accommodations.
