Schroeder Comments on EEOC’s New Coronavirus Guidance

03 April 2020 Law360 News

Partner Don Schroeder was quoted in a Law360 article, “EEOC Coronavirus Guidance No Silver Bullet For ADA Risks,” about recent guidance that gives employers leeway to respond aggressively to the novel coronavirus without violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.

 

Schroeder said that while the guidance gives employers some space to impose safety measures that might run afoul of the ADA under normal circumstances, the realities of the pandemic as well as the swelling number of workers being laid off or furloughed means that businesses aren’t completely inoculated from potential ADA violations. “I would expect an uptick in the filing of ADA cases just as a result of the huge disruption of workforces across the United States and the sheer volume of people being terminated,” he said.
