Who is infected at your organization? Learn how to handle employees who have COVID-19 and don’t care whom they hurt.
Some people care more about themselves than others, or they wrongly believe that COVID-19 does not pose a threat to those around them. They come to work, attend school, or visit public establishments while knowingly infected with the coronavirus. They want to collect their paychecks and live their lives despite the consequences for their colleagues. On the other hand, some employees cannot afford to take time off of work when ill because of employer policies, putting everyone in their organization at risk of contracting COVID-19.
This situation poses unique challenges for employers. Individuals and organizations can be held liable for failing to protect others and exposing them to the virus.
