With all of the news out there involving the current world news…
Here are some reasonable steps to prepare for a pandemic:
Designate one person as the office contact
If the WHO (World Health Organization) increases the health risk level to 6 (pandemic), you should be ready to do telecommuting.
Plan to have your employee’s notify you if they are traveling to any of the high risk areas (locally or abroad).
Restrict employee travel to high risk areas.
Be sensitive to employees with children.
OSHA (The Occupational Safety and Health Act) prevents employers from retaliating against employees who refuse to work if they reasonably believe they would be in danger at work.
Have a policy or an emergency plan in place.
