Ebola and Employers: The Law to Know, The Plans to Make

News of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, and the small number of cases that have been treated in the United States, has dominated the news in recent weeks.  Though there have only been isolated incidents of exposure to Ebola in the United States, employers and employees are increasingly concerned about the health and safety of their workplaces.  This webinar will cover the law that applies to workplaces affected by the disease or by fear of the disease, including how to deal with employees consistent with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the latest guidance from the CDC and OSHA relevant to the workplace.
