The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has made a number of updates to its COVID-19 resource “What You Should Know About COVID-19 and the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and Other EEO Laws.” This resource helps employers, employees, and job applicants understand COVID-19-related issues that may arise in the workplace.

Key updates include:

  • Clarifying that the end of the public health emergency does not mean pandemic-related reasonable accommodations can automatically terminated.
    • Note, however, those accommodations may be reevaluated on an individualized basis.
  • Providing common examples of possible reasonable accommodations for people with Long COVID.
  • Providing tips for employers about remaining alert for COVID-related harassment of applicants or employees with a disability-related need to continue wearing a face mask or take other COVID-19 precautions at work.
