Protect EMPLOYEES & THEIR FAMILIES
Stop the spread
Employees who are confirmed to have COVID-19 or who have a sick family member at home, should immediately notify their employer and everyone they came into contact with, so they can follow the CDC guidance for how to conduct a risk assessment of their potential exposure.
Inform others of potential exposure
Employers should inform fellow employees of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace, while maintaining confidentiality, as required by ADA. Employees exposed to a co-worker with confirmed COVID-19 should refer to CDC guidance for how to conduct a risk assessment of their potential exposure.
Care for the Sick
When employees get sick, they should follow CDC-recommended steps, which means they stay home, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
Employees should not return to work until the criteria to discontinue home isolation are met, in consultation with healthcare providers and state and local health departments. The new family act requires paid sick leave for those infected and caring for others.
Get up to speed
Research your workers compensation and health insurance policies to get up to speed with what’s covered and how you can better serve your sick employees and their families.
