The ADA at Thirty: 2020 Recap and What to Expect in 2021
In July 2020, the ADA celebrated its 30th birthday as being the law of the land. In this webinar, Jonathan Mook will present an overview of significant ADA developments that occurred in 2020, particularly as they concern the COVID-19 pandemic. The EEOC’s new relaxed standards for medical testing, the applicability of the ADA’s direct threat defense to COVID-19, and whether COVID-19 is a “disability” will be discussed. Jonathan also will offer a preview of emerging ADA issues that municipalities can expect to face in 2021, including the expansion of telework as a reasonable accommodation and whether an employer may require mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations.
