In November, employment attorney Jo Ellen Whitney presented “COVID-19 Case Law and Legal Issues (ADA Accommodation Issues)” as part of a panel for the Iowa State Bar Association’s 2020 Labor and Employment Law Seminar.
On the panel with Jo Ellen were attorneys Miriam Van Heukelem and Erika Bauer. They discussed how COVID-19 issues relate to healthcare, and focused on PPE, rights of nursing staff/doctors, and guidelines to avoid legal claims.
The group also covered employee privacy issues with HIPPA/HITECH changes, increased use of telemedicine, and social media.
