As the number of reported cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to rise, employers are increasingly confronted with the possibility of an outbreak in the workplace.

Employers are obligated to maintain a safe and healthy work environment for their employees, but are also subject to a number of legal requirements protecting workers. For example, employers must comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) in their approach to dealing with COVID-19.

Our latest Compliance Bulletin provides a summary of the compliance issues facing employers in this type of situation. To continue reading the Bulletin, please click here.

If we can answer any questions or be of any assistance throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact us.
