Supporting employees with coronavirus
The coronavirus pandemic is drastically changing how and where businesses are operating. Despite the upheaval, one thing hasn't changed: an employer's duty to protect employees' privacy should they become infected.
Be prepared to communicate with your staff and help employees connect with resources they may not know about. Protecting the privacy of an employee with the virus and other workers' wellness is paramount. Support will likely need to extend beyond traditional sick leave and well wishes for a rapid recovery.
