Coronavirus & Pandemic Response

Training & Resources for Employers

 
As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread, employers need to plan how to respond and comply with occupational safety requirements to protect their employees and ensure business continuity. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued a reminder to employers of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) worker protection standards and of recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

 

To help you navigate this turbulent issue, we've compiled key resources and are standing by to provide consultative guidance.

“Employers must balance their obligations to provide a safe workplace as required by the Occupational Safety and Health Act with their obligation to avoid violating privacy and discrimination laws. Some situations, such as the H1N1 pandemic of 2009, permit a higher level of inquiry into an employee’s illness without running afoul of the ADA, but there is no indication that the coronavirus has reached that level.”

 

Jodi R. Bohr, an attorney with Tiffany & Bosco, P.A.

While working from home may seem like an easy method to implement, this disruption in workers’ normal routines may cause lessened productivity or even added stress. Having an emergency work-from-home plan in place ahead of time can help businesses meet these issues head-on and provide structure.
