EEOC Issues Guidance on Returning Workers

On Tuesday, May 5, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued new guidance to address returning workers with pre-existing medical conditions. The next day, May 6, the agency retracted part of that new guidance, saying the answer to G.4 in the document was revised to clarify the ADA does not allow exclusion of employees simply because they have an underlying medical condition that the CDC says might pose a higher risk of severe illness if the individual contracts COVID-19.
