COVID-19 Updates

Recent spikes in the number of COVID -19 cases has increased the number of questions employers have had related to positive cases and employee exposures to the virus.

MIOSHA still considers your workforce to be “critical infrastructure employees,” thus allowing the industry to operate under the CDC guidelines for said employees. See the link here for those guidelines.

Another important reminder is that MIOSHA now requires all employees to have received training on COVID-19. These training requirements can be found in the emergency orders that were released on October 14. MITA is prepared to perform or assist in the necessary training.

Bodman Law Firm has graciously provided some clarification On the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and how it applies to the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Act.
