The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most disruptive and unprecedented events to occur in modern times. The direction and guidance surrounding the welfare of a business and its employees is constantly evolving – sometimes weekly and often daily. Due to the changing nature of this environment, businesses reviewing, contemplating and implementing policies surrounding worker safety should regularly consult with several critical government and public health protection sources we have listed below for your reference.

 

 

  • State Regulatory Requirements: Individual states update their regulatory requirements relating to the virus on a regular basis. The requirements can vary extensively state to state. 

 

  • Legal Counsel: Before implementing any new employment policies, clients should consult with their legal counsel.  

 

These public health protection sources provide critical guidance and direction on a frequent basis – sometimes daily – and should be re-checked often to ensure relevancy for your business. The links below can provide direct access to the updates and in some cases, you can sign up for alerts to receive instant updates in your inbox.
