EEOC Holding Remote Telephonic Meeting and Issues Updated COVID-19 Technical Assistance Publication

EEOC will hold a remote, audio-only Commission meeting on Wednesday, April 29 at 1:00 p.m. (ET).  The following matters are scheduled for consideration:

  • Announcement of notation votes;
  • Formal opinion letter on Federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC);
  • Rescission of Compliance Manual Section 604: Theories of Discrimination; and
  • Rescission of Compliance Manual Section 604 Appendix-C on Polygraph Examinations.

Interested parties may listen into the conference by following the instructions that will be posted on the agency website 24 hours prior to the meeting.  A recording and transcript of the meeting will also be posted on the agency website at a later date.

In the updated COVID-19 technical assistance publication, EEOC addressed questions arising under EEO Laws related to COVID-19.   The publication, “What You Should Know About COVID-19 and the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and Other EEO Laws” expands on a previous publication that focused on the ADA and Rehabilitation Act, and adds questions-and-answers on testing, medical exams, and essential workers.

In response to inquiries from the public, the EEOC has provided resources on its website related to the pandemic in an employment context.  The agency will continue to monitor developments and provide assistance to the public as needed.
