Partner Carrie Hoffman and Senior Counsel Taylor White were featured in The Texas Lawbook article, “Coronavirus Client Service: FAQ Edition,” which provided answers to some of the most frequently answered questions that TLB is hearing amid the coronavirus pandemic. The article drew from Foley’s Coronavirus Resource Center and provided advice to questions including:
- If I decide to take employees’ temperatures or other health screening procedures, does the person administering the screening need to be a medical professional?
- If I implement a voluntary work from home policy for the next several weeks or a month for employees who are able to work remotely, do I need to reimburse them for expenses?
- We recently received products that were shipped from one of the countries that the centers for disease control has designated “Level 3.” My employees [or customers] are refusing to handle the product. What should I do?
- Can I Discipline Employees for not Covering Their Mouths when Coughing/Sneezing or for Failing to Regularly Use Provided Hand Sanitizers?
