COVID-19 Pandemic and Caregiver Discrimination 

Discrimination against a person with caregiving responsibilities may be unlawful under federal employment discrimination laws enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). New guidance was released earlier this week to help employers further understand the policies as it relates to COVID-19 circumstances.

As the pandemic evolves, the challenge of juggling work and caregiving obligations remains. We encourage you to review the provided document from the EEOC and make note of the best practices as it relates to caregivers.
