Stay informed on and disseminate as appropriate updates from local and national health authorities, such as CDC, WHO and OSHA. Ensure you comply with all government orders, including closing non-essential services and "shelter-in-place" orders. Update emergency plans to incorporate protocols for dealing with potentially infected employees. Review, update or create emergency preparedness policies and procedures. Communicate with employees, especially remote employees, about new or updated safety precautions or procedures. Develop a full COVID-19 Response Plan that includes best practices for documentation and guidelines for dealing with infected or potentially infected employees. Determine how you will manage paid sick and vacation leave, including statutory paid sick leave for COVID-19 infected workers per the new Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Update your employee handbook with remote workforce policies to help employees understand their new work landscape. CHECKLIST Hiring During COVID-19 Employers face never-before-seen challenges when it comes to operating during this novel coronavirus pandemic. And even bigger challenges when it comes to hiring. The checklist below was designed to help you navigate these uncertain times and draw your attention to the issues likely to require immediate action. Review all insurance policies, including workers' compensation, commercial auto and general liability (when an employee's duties change, your old coverage may not be adequate). Update Form I-9 Procedures during the COVID-19 outbreak. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has made changes to how Form I-9 documents are reviewed, including extending the amount of time an employer has to review the records. Learn more here. Prepare EEO-1 Report: If you have more than 100 employees, or if you're a federal contractor with more than 50 employees, you are required to submit a certified report by May 31, 2020.
