The COVID-19 pandemic has raised many questions for employers, who are suddenly faced with the prospect of taking unprecedented steps to protect employees from being exposed to the virus. Some of these steps—including conducting health checks on employees, excluding sick employees from the workplace, and taking steps to protect employees who are at higher risk of severe illness—implicate the Americans with Disabilities Act and other federal antidiscrimination laws enforced by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
