New ReedGroup Public Health Solution for Large Employers’ COVID-Related Disability and Absence Concerns
ReedGroup, a leading provider of disability and absence management, announced a new Public Health solution to help employers address and manage COVID-related absences, exemptions, and accommodations for their workforce, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re here to take the complex tasks around accommodations and exemptions off employers’ plates, while helping to minimize their compliance risk.”
Included in the new Public Health solution:
- Expanded ADA-related leave services that now cover accommodations for employees who can’t return to the workplace because they are medically unable to receive a COVID-19 vaccine,
- Management of employees’ requests for religious exemptions from vaccine requirements,
- Management of requests for other accommodations related to public health issues, such as working from home to avoid exposure in order to protect the health of someone at home,
- Reporting that provides detailed, anonymized insights to allow employers to plan for future absences based on current data, and helps employers understand their workforce and make informed decisions about the pandemic and its impact on staffing.
The company will offer vaccine and test tracking in early 2022, to allow employers to verify employees’ vaccine or test status digitally and securely.
