Thank you Matt and DLT!!!!
Question for Matt. Current situation re: quarantine requirements can run to 24 days. If an employee uses the first 10 days under Emerg Paid Sick Leave … can that employee then file for unemployment for the remainder of the 14 days?
Thanks - this question was just answered
Are there any questions for the speakers at this time?
Put a positve on OSHA log even if we KNOW it was not work related?
For Matt: So if an EEs benefits expire under FFCRA, and they have another unfortunate episode with COVID that keeps them out of work,, they can they apply for PUI?
One more q for Matt... If an employee has a Dr.s note allowing them to stay on TDI longer than the initial 2 weeks for a covid related issue, how long will TDI compensate the employee. is there a limit for covid related issues?
For Craig: I was under the impression that employers can't post-WC injury drug test in RI. Has that changed?
Last Chance! Are there any more questions at this time?
what happens if an employee knowingly leave to a country or state considered a red zone? can a company deter them from this risk.
I've used the RI OSHA Consult Progrma - they are terrific!
Im sensing some abuse of FFCRA among employees - "get a COVID test and get a few days paid out of work" - any opinion on that?
Any comments on what an employer can do to incentivize an employee to make good choices outside of work. Like masks, distances, forgo social circles etc.
thank you everyone
