CORONAVIRUS AND THE POSSIBLE IMPACT ON THE WORKPLACE:
BE PROACTIVE

 

The World Health Organization and the United States have declared the coronavirus a public health emergency. As a result, businesses will need to prepare for the impact the coronavirus may have on the workplace.  Because the virus has an incubation period of at least two weeks and can be transmitted person-to-person, it has deadly potential.  Join us for an informative session to help businesses be ready to deal with a potential outbreak.

This session will cover:

·         What is the coronavirus and what are the symptoms?

·         What are the best safety and health practices in the workplace?

·         What measures if any should be taken with employees who have recently traveled to China?

·         What leave laws and policies may apply?

·         What proactive measures can employers take now before there are any cases in Hawaii?

·         What other legal implications are there if an employee is infected with the coronavirus?
