Training Overview

Do mask and vaccine accommodations pose direct threats? Balance ADA accommodations with workplace safety.

One team member experiences respiratory challenges that make it impossible for her to wear a mask. Another employee has severe allergies that make COVID-19 vaccines risky. They could be eligible for ADA accommodations to not abide by their employer’s mask and vaccination policies. These accommodations may put their colleagues at greater risk of infection.

You need to understand when a requested accommodation represents a "direct threat" due to a "significant risk of substantial harm to the health and safety of the individual or others that cannot be eliminated or reduced by reasonable accommodation."
