The Second in a Series on Workplace Issues during COVID-19
Managing your organization’s operations and compliance with workplace rights and requirements is crucial to responding effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first in this series of on-demand videos reviewed the intersection of workplace planning with an overview of employment, labor, discrimination and cyber security laws. More than 100 questions were submitted during the live webinar.
In this follow-up, the panel reconvenes, and in Town Hall fashion provides responses to the most frequently asked and most compelling questions, including:
- Can an employer expect a healthcare provider or the CDC to notify the employer if an employee is treated for COVID-19?
- How do you respect Employee A’s confidentiality and let other employees who have been working closely with Employee A know that they may have been exposed to the virus and should self-quarantine or seek medical attention themselves?
- With respect to employee travel, can an employer require self-quarantine for an employee who travels within the US for personal vacation time?
- To what extent can an employer require its employees to take accrued Paid Time Off (PTO) during a slowdown in business caused by COVID-19?
In addition to responding to questions, the panel will provide updates on recently passed legislation and evolving issues.
Recorded live on March 27, 2020.
