Posted by Bradley Glazier | Aug 04, 2022 | 0 Comments

If you or someone you know has contracted COVID-19, and continue to experience ongoing symptoms for months afterward, you or they may have a disease described as Post-Acute COVID-19 Syndrome or long COVID.  Federal law may provide job protection if you need time off work or accommodations due to long COVID.  The United States Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued a answers to some of the most frequently asked questions that people with long COVID-19 have about their rights under the American Disabilities Act.  The ADA provides protection for employees who have disabilities that are unrelated to their ability to work, particularly when the disability can be accommodated by their employers and where the employer would not suffer an undue hardship for doing so.  Click on this link for the DOL publication.  Visit this link for more information about the ADA.
