On May 21, 2020, Colorado Governor Jared Polis issued Guidance to Employers and Places of Public Accommodation Regarding Equal Opportunity Employment and Reasonable Accommodations Due to the Presence of COVID-19.
Earlier this month, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted the defendant U.S. Soccer Federation’s motion for summary judgment with respect to the plaintiffs’ Equal Pay Act (EPA) claims.
It is safe to say that spring 2020 will not soon be forgotten. While the COVID-19 pandemic dominated the news and the attention of federal and state governments alike, the Maryland General Assembly passed several new laws affecting the workplace.
In a series of guidance, the EEOC addressed protections under the ADA for workers who are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, clarified when such individuals may be excluded from the workplace, and shared examples of accommodations.
As the nuances of Colorado Governor Jared Polis’s “Safer at Home” Order continue to reveal themselves to Colorado employers resuming operations, one more state agency has weighed in: the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.
