With respect to returning to work, employers must consider a host of issues, including:
How do you determine who must come back to work and avoid discrimination claims? Can you prohibit high-risk employees from returning to work?
Can and should you test employees and/or take their temperature and monitor their symptoms?
How do you ensure employee safety?
Must you accommodate employees who cannot return to work because their childcare providers are not available?
Can you require employees to return to work or terminate them for refusing to return to work if they are scared, nervous, or anxious about contracting COVID-19?
What are your obligations if an employee contracts COVID-19 at work? Is this covered by workers’ compensation?
