SHRM Resource
The Society for Human Resource Management developed a resource for business owners to consult on how to handle staff policies surrounding COVID-19, such as employees visiting high-risk states. It points out the latest legal requirements and provides ethical guidance. Though this was originally published in March, this info is still relevant today with the exception that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines have changed regarding when health care personnel are able to return to work after being infected. Visit SHRM’s website here for the full report.
