In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, NELA has created this hub to share information, resources, and announcements related to COVID-19 and its implications for workers’ rights attorneys, as well as our community. Check this microsite regularly for updates on NELA programs, legislative updates, and other ways you can stay connected with the NELA community. It is likely the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic will be far-reaching and long-lasting.

To ensure the safety of our staff, the NELA and Institute teams (California and Washington, D.C. offices) are working remotely. Please be aware that our ability to check office mailboxes or receive deliveries is limited at this time. You can still reach us by emailing us or calling our offices, and we encourage you to keep in touch!

We are actively collaborating to further our work and bring you top-notch CLE programs and services. Please know that we at NELA and The Institute are here for you, and we’ll continue to be in touch as the situation develops.

Thank you for joining us for our briefing, The ADA, Age Discrimination, And Worker Health During The COVID-19 Pandemic. A recording of this briefing will be available here soon.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, workers who are more susceptible to COVID-19 have dealt with the difficult decision of whether to work—often in situations that do not offer appropriate safeguards for their health. Many other workers are faced with making the choice to return to work when they live with family members or housemates who are at higher risk. Others are concerned with how employers will treat sensitive medical information or testing requirements when returning to the workplace. With states beginning to “re-open,” more workers will be faced with these choices.
