Managing Ebola Concerns in the Workplace [PODCAST]
Many employers are struggling to understand the potential workplace implications of Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF). We invite you to listen to a complimentary 48-minute podcast during which three Jackson Lewis practice group leaders discuss some of the legal and practical issues relating to the virus. Among the issues discussed are:
Steps employers should consider taking to ensure OSHA and state workplace health and safety laws are satisfied;
ADA, GINA and FMLA compliance challenges that may arise as employers attempt to lawfully identify and manage employees who are or may have been exposed to Ebola; and
HIPAA and other sources of privacy and medical confidentiality obligations that should be considered as employers respond to workplace Ebola concerns.
