As the Coronavirus continues to spread, Dykema hosted a 60-minute webinar on the challenges for employers when managing potential workplace infections, as well as justified employee concerns for their safety.

Challenges covered included:

  • Deciding whether an employee can be sent home because of apparent or actual illness, or even as a result of potential exposure to the virus
  • Addressing co-worker refusals to work with an employee who is apparently ill or who may have been exposed to the Coronavirus
  • Advising employees about best practices to reduce the likelihood of infections in the workplace
  • Counseling employees who refuse to come to work because of fear about contracting COVID-19

This webinar explored these questions and discussed what duty employers have to protect employees from the disease, what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising, what Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) obligations may exist, the impact of reasonable accommodations and what personnel policies may be implicated, and whether updates to employer policies are in order. Other issues raised revolved around travel restrictions, compensation problems for employees who do miss work, voluntarily or otherwise, and how best to communicate with employees about this evolving situation.
