Legal Guidance for Employers on Navigating New Wellness/Health Policies – On Demand Webinar

Ruth Binger

By Ruth Binger

A recent survey of Missouri manufacturers by Missouri Enterprise found that understanding wellness and health guidelines due to Covid-19 is a top challenge for moving forward.

In “Legal Guidance to Help Employers Navigate New Wellness/Health Policies,” a webinar from Missouri Enterprise, I discuss major obstacles and gray areas related to protecting employees in the new normal of Covid-19.

Watch the webinar to learn how to navigate the new health order while protecting employees on the job. Questions include:

  • Can employers require employees to get flu or Covid-19 vaccinations?
  • What questions can an employer legally ask when an employee calls in sick?
  • What can an employer do if an employee doesn’t want to return to work because they are afraid of getting sick?
  • Can an employer require high-risk employees (due to age or health) to stay home?
  • What information can an employer share with other employees if an employee is being tested for the virus?
  • Can a company require an employee to leave work if they seem ill?
  • Can an employer be held liable if an employee contacts the virus at the workplace?
  • If the virus spread through the workplace, is it considered a workers’ comp injury?
