Coronavirus – Updates on COVID-19
In past weeks, and especially recent days, employers have been asking if they should develop a plan to address Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and, if so, what they should do. We regularly receive questions about how to manage employee illnesses and what an employer should/can legally do if an employee calls in sick or an employee who has reported to work appears to be ill. The highly contagious nature of COVID-19 (it’s been reported that it is 40 times more infectious than the flu) and reports that individuals who have no symptoms are able to pass COVID-19 along to others who could then become severely ill contribute to the challenge in preventing the spread of this virus.
Please note, we are not holding any in-person events or training programs.
