On September 8, 2020, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) added 18 new FAQs to its existing guidance regarding how employers should comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) during the coronavirus pandemic. Two FAQs were also updated from the existing guidance.

The new and updated guidance clarifies questions employers may ask employees about COVID-19 and about teleworking.

Employers that are subject to ADA should familiarize themselves with these new/updated FAQs as well as the full guidance (Pandemic Preparedness in the Workplace) that the EEOC updated several times this year. Employers are subject to ADA if they have 15 or more employees.
