As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, many employers are left with questions about how to prepare for coronavirus while preparing for the possibility of remote work, quarantines, temporary business closures and/or other challenges. With many businesses forced planning for various contingency situations, AAIM Employers’ Association CEO, Phil Brandt facilitated a live-webinar on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 with legal expert, Burt Garland, Attorney & Partner with Ogletree Deakins & medical expert, Dr. Alexander Garza, MD, Chief Medical Officer of SSM Health.

Here are just a few of the concerns we addressed during the webinar:
  • Can proof of a negative coronavirus result be required before allowing an employee in self-quarantine to return to work?
  • How should employers handle an employee who may have been exposed to the virus?
  • If an employee contracts the virus at work, should it be treated as workers’ compensation?
  • What options are there when an employee refuses to self-quarantine after returning from a personal trip to a level three country?
