Professor Ruth Colker, an expert on disability discrimination, was recently referenced in an article by concerning return to work practices amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The article cites Colker in saying that “although the federal government’s guidance suggests that employers should try to accommodate (at-risk people), it does not seem to prevent the employer from firing (them, if they) cannot come to work.”

Colker, a 2009 recipient of The Ohio State University’s Distinguished University Professor award, is also an expert in the areas of constitutional law, disability law and education law.
