Professor Ruth Colker, an expert in disability law, was recently interviewed by The New York Times for an article titled, “For many caregivers and people with disabilities, working from home was never just a perk.”

“I know some people are saying ‘Hey, look! These employers have been insisting that telecommuting cant work, and now we know they were wrong,'” Colker said. “But I think it’s equally possible that employers will say, ‘No, no we had reduced productivity.'”

Colker added, “There’s a limit on how much we can generalize from this situation.”
