FORBES: New EEOC Accommodation Guidelines: What Individuals With Disabilities Need To Know

Good news because employers are now familiar with how to set up remote business. The bad news is that there are already some misconceptions about accommodations related to the pandemic. To help with this, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently released guidelines for accommodations during the pandemic.
