Is telecommuting a reasonable accommodation? Learn how COVID-19 relates to the ADA.
Many employees may request reasonable accommodations of remote work arrangements during COVID-19. If your organization grants employees the right to telecommute, it is critical to understand that the ADA prohibits retaliation against an individual receiving a reasonable accommodation.
Managers may be angry that particular employees insist on working remotely due to COVID-19. Nevertheless, they must avoid taking actions and making comments that a court could consider retaliation.
