The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has issued an updated technical assistance publication that features additional questions and answers and information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on federal equal employment opportunity laws.

According to an EEOC press release, the updated publication, “What You Should Know About COVID-19 and the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act and Other EEO Laws,” adds 18 questions and answers that have been adapted from two other EEOC technical assistance resources: “Pandemic Preparedness in the Workplace and the Americans with Disabilities Act” and a March 27, 2020 publicly available EEOC webinar.

In addition to the updated publication, the EEOC has provided resources related to the pandemic in an employment context.

More information and resources on COVID-19 can be found in the technical assistance publication and on the EEOC website.
