It’s not just employee cleaning that can set off disputes. Employers taking extra sanitation precautions as part of their coronavirus safety measures need to be mindful of their responsibilities to accommodate workers with allergies, respiratory issues, migraines, and other potential disabilities, said Peter Gillespie, an attorney at Laner Muchin in Chicago.

“You run into employers saying they need to take additional measures, and employees saying they can’t tolerate that” because of medical conditions that may be covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act, Gillespie said, adding that at some point this will percolate up into lawsuits.
