November 20, 2014 - Outbreak: Ebola vs. Fearbola in the Workplace: Practical Guidance for Employers
Ebola, and other potential epidemics, is a rising concern of employers and employees. And while public health knowledge is increasing with each new report, there are few black and white answers to many employment questions. Employers must responsibly weigh safety and legal risks and apply public health guidance in the framework of the ADA, OSHA standards and common law privacy concerns. Your employees may already be asking questions or expressing concerns about Ebola and how it could impact the workplace. Many visitors to the U.S. are from affected countries and many employees travel for business or pleasure to locations hit hard by the virus. It is important not to panic, but it is also important to be prepared to deal with questions, concerns and perceived problems. Join us at our next Breakfast Briefing designed to help employers face these issues and deal with them in a thoughtful manner.
