Given the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, many employers are uncertain how their organizations and employees may be affected. ETS is monitoring the evolving implications of the virus and has created a resource page to help with support, and planning during this unsettling time.
Employers have an obligation to provide a safe and healthy workplace, which may include taking steps to protect against the risk or spread of infectious diseases. Implementing a sensible strategy to protect employees and the workplace in general will help employers demonstrate compliance with such legal obligations.
