Workers with Long COVID-19 and the ADA

Tuesday, October 19, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time Zone


A significant portion of individuals who had COVID-19 continue to experience longer term effects and symptoms of the virus. People dealing with Post-acute COVID-19 Syndrome, or Long COVID, are often referred to as "long haulers. As employers continue to deal with the impact of COVID-19 in the workplace, it is important to learn about potential ADA implications for candidates and employees dealing with Long COVID. Join us for a discussion about long-term impacts of a COVID-19 diagnosis, determining if long-term effects of COVID result in an ADA-protected disability, potential ADA protections for long-haulers, negotiating and identifying reasonable accommodations, and medical documentation and confidentiality. Participants will have an opportunity to ask the speaker questions following the presentation.

Questions for presenters:

1 I manage Disability Services for students at a public university. This webinar is addressing Long COVID in the workplace. You may prefer to address this topic in a separate webinar, but it would be most helpful if you would also address how we should deal with the long-term impact of COVID on our students? It may be quite similar to your information for employers and employees, but this topic is definitely on the minds of DS professionals as we strive to effectively provide services for our students.
