The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed a lawsuit against a provider of office maintenance services. It alleges that it violated federal disability law by refusing an employee’s request to telework even though it allowed others to work from home because of the pandemic.

The EEOC said in a news statement that the case represents the first pandemic lawsuit it has filed about a request for an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) related to COVID-19.

Employers must provide reasonable accommodations for those with disabilities.
