- Don’t require employees to get COVID-19 antibody tests. Yesterday, the EEOC issued new guidance confirming that the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employers from requiring employees to take antibody or serology tests to determine if they were ever infected with COVID-19. As a result, while employers may require employees to be tested to see if they have COVID-19, they should not require employees to be tested for antibodies before returning to work. The EEOC indicated that this guidance might be adjusted based on future recommendations from the CDC. Read our guidance on permissible COVID-19 viral tests here. Authored by Peter Donati
