Managing Infectious Diseases in the Workplace

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Deirdre Kamber Todd



Webinar Description

The outbreak of Ebola in Africa and its spread to the United States has produced anxiety in the public and, undoubtedly, among the employees in many workplaces.  Your employees will want to know that you are doing everything that is feasible and legal to protect them from the risk of contracting highly contagious and potentially deadly diseases.  How do you manage your workers’ fears about catching a dangerous disease in your workplace and how do you communicate effectively to your employees the steps you are taking to keep them from harm?  Can an employer require a symptomatic employee to stay at home?  What about asymptomatic employees who have been in contact with an infected person?  Can you impose sensible travel bans on your employees?  What should be included in a company communicable disease policy?  These and other relevant questions will be answered by employment attorney Deirdre Kamber Todd.  She will review critical facts about Ebola and other contagious diseases that can be communicated to your workforce and offer best practices consistent with applicable law on managing the risk that highly infectious diseases will infiltrate your workplace.
