EEOC Solicits Stakeholder Questions Ahead of Free Technical Assistance Session

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will publicly post a prerecorded online webinar addressing questions arising under any of the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Laws and the COVID-19 pandemic to its website www.eeoc.gov on Friday afternoon, March 27. No registration is necessary to view this prerecorded webinar.

The webinar will be devoted to answering questions submitted in advance about how to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in light of the federal employment nondiscrimination laws. The prerecorded webinar will only address the ADA, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Title VII, and GINA, as these are the laws the EEOC enforces. The EEOC is asking for questions to be submitted by email to COVID19.Questions@eeoc.gov by 9:00 p.m. (eastern time) on Wednesday March 25th for consideration in this webinar.

The webinar will supplement the COVID-19 publications already issued by the EEOC, including the "What You Should Know About the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and COVID-19" and "Pandemic Preparedness in the Workplace and the Americans with Disabilities Act". The EEOC last updated the COVID-19 "What You Should Know" on Thursday, March 19, 2020, and the Pandemic Preparedness document in light of COVID-19 on Saturday, March 21, 2020.

The EEOC advances opportunity in the workplace by enforcing federal laws prohibiting employ­ment discrimination. More information is available at www.eeoc.gov. Stay connected with the latest EEOC news by subscribing to our email updates.
