As Ohio businesses start the important process of reopening and employees begin the process of returning to work, Weston Hurd LLP, employment attorneys, weigh in on workplace concerns and considerations such as:

  • When should employers go through the interactive process with employees who are fearful about returning to work or who are medically fragile due to pre-existing conditions?
  • How should employers handle the interactive process for returning employees to work and responding to various concerns and conditions of returning employees?
  • How should employers handle the difficult situation when an employee does not want to return to work?
  • What procedures and precautions should employers adopt for restarting the workplace with employees on site?
  • What goes too far in the area of daily employee wellness checks and what questions can employees be asked?
  • How should employers handle temperature checks of employees and visitors at the workplace?
  • What can and can't employers require of visitors?
  • Wellness assessment protocols - general statements or specific health and wellbeing questions?
  • Returning to work for COVID-19 following COVID-19 exposure.
  • What is the litigation landscape on the horizon related to employers and COVID-19.
  • FMLA, ADA, OSHA laws and guidances from the DOL, EEOC and OSHA in the COVID-19 world order.
