COVID-19 and employees in the workplace

COVID-19 and employees in the workplace

We’ve been getting some questions, so here are some answers.

As businesses and schools open up (or have been for a while), we are getting some questions about COVID-19 policies with very practical implications.

Here are the answers to three common questions: 

  • What if my child’s school tells me that I need to quarantine due to possible exposure? What benefits am I eligible for?
  • Some employees are traveling to states that are at risk. Can an employer require an employee to take a COVID-19 test, stay at home, and submit test results?
  • What if an employee has used their federal paid time benefit, but they are still required to quarantine?
