COVID-19 and the FMLA and ADA: Everything You Need To Know

COVID-19 is so new that most HR managers don’t know how the FMLA or ADA applies. For example, does contracting the novel coronavirus constitute a “serious health condition” under FMLA or a “disability” under the ADA? Is being under quarantine, regarded as a disability under the ADA, even if they are not actually infected? Further complicating matters, some people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus will either be asymptomatic or will present only mild symptoms.

In this practical and timely webinar, leading risk-management attorney Zac Kester will answer these questions and help you navigate FMLA and ADA obligations to infected and affected employees while also satisfying employers’ health and safety obligations.

In this short but information-packed webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Confidently apply the FMLA and ADA as they relate to COVID-19.
  • Learn how to approach a variety of scenarios such as an employee who is infected, an employee who has an infected household member, an employee who is sick but not yet diagnosed, etc.
  • Receive tips on how to manage the highly-cautious employee who indicates they do not want to come to work.
  • Know the rights and limits of employers to require employee medical testing before returning to work.
