The Law Firm for Your Business . . . As Usual!
In these uncertain times, as businesses struggle to deal with the impacts of COVID-19, the attorneys at Poole Shaffery want to remind all of our clients and those in our community:
- To remain vigilant in maintaining “social distancing” of at least six feet when dealing with co-workers, clients or vendors, wherever practical;
- To encourage employee telecommuting and work-from-home arrangements in the event of a quarantine or self-quarantine ordered by a physician;
- To develop, revise and maintain a written policy, outlining the steps employees should take to reduce the transmission of all communicable diseases in the workplace (including identifying symptoms of illness, washing hands throughout the workday, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces); and,
- To confer with legal counsel or competent HR personnel to determine how existing sick and/or PTO leaves should be used in the event of an illness, outbreak or quarantine.
The attorneys at Poole Shaffery are here to help your business navigate through the uncertainty ahead! We remain well-prepared to serve our clients' needs – albeit through more electronic communications than usual – to keep your business up-to-date on the latest changes in the law and “best practices” when managing COVID-19 impacts at work!
We look forward to remaining The Law Firm For Your Business, and hope to see a return to everyone’s “normal” work life shortly!
