About the White Paper
To help you better understand how Long COVID could impact your workforce, The Standard has created a white paper that dives in to what Long COVID is, the symptoms workers may be experiencing, and the strategies and accommodations you can put in to place to help support them. In this white paper, you’ll find:
Employees with Long COVID are likely to become one of the largest groups of workers requiring accommodations. Changes in performance, behavior or appearance could reflect an issue.
Learn about how to communicate with employees who may be struggling with Long COVID, and what resources may be available to support them.
Disability insurance carriers have experience helping workers with chronic conditions that are similar to Long COVID symptoms, and can provide support through stay-at-work and return-to-work solutions and reasonable accommodations.
