Posted by Rebecca Scott on Nov 30, 2020 12:15:17 PM

A few weeks ago, we attended a webinar, Annual Disability & Leave Management Symposium: COVID-19 Style, hosted by Patricia Anderson Pryor and Katharine C. Weber from Jackson Lewis. This webinar was educational, entertaining and explained some unanswered questions that have been boggling our minds, such as, "is COVID-19 a disability?"

We learned a lot during this webinar, from what’s considered a disability, to the importance of providing accommodations to employees in the midst of COVID-19. That’s why we’re sharing our top takeaways that leave managers should know.
