The following is from an ACTEC press release:
The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) today released its video, Chronic Illness and Long COVID in the Workplace, to provide tools to help employers and employees navigate through managing Long COVID and other chronic illnesses in the workplace. The video is the College’s 19th in its monthly informational series Planning for a Diverse and Equitable Future, which is a project of ACTEC’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity Committee, and funded by The ACTEC Foundation.
The COVID pandemic has deeply affected the world and the workplace. Many people infected with the virus are experiencing long-term effects from their infection, known as Long COVID or Post COVID conditions (PCC). ACTEC Fellow Karen M. Stockmal interviews Erica Taylor, a staff attorney with the Atlanta Volunteers Lawyers Foundation, who is afflicted with Long COVID, to learn about her ongoing experience with this disease, talk about her strategies to combat the cognitive impacts, and offer recommendations to other Long COVID sufferers. Amy McAndrew, a labor and employment attorney with the MidAtlantic Employers’ Association, joins Karen and Erica to discuss the rights of employees and employers as they navigate Long COVID and other chronic illnesses.
