It is vital for employers to take immediate action and ensure that the employee is safely escorted out of the office/workplace. To keep other employees safe, it is important to confirm where the employee had been present in the office and whether the employee came into contact with any other workers during their time in the office or workplace.
Employers should also take appropriate measures to clean and sanitize the workplace, including any areas where the employee was present in the office.
Further, if the employee encountered any other workers, employers should take initiative and advise workers that they may have been exposed to COVID-19, to go home and self-isolate.
If you are an employer and have an employee that refuses to self-isolate and you are looking for legal advice, or if you have any questions relating to your employees and COVID-19, please contact Toronto employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers at 416-214-5111 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
