Ebola-Related Workplace Issues

Due to the unprecedented outbreak of Ebola virus, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a travel advisory for Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia. Ebola also has been identified in numerous other countries in Africa and has traveled to the U.S. This legal quick hit addresses practical and legal considerations in the disability and leave management context, among others, that may arise relating to employee exposure to Ebola or travel to and from affected areas. These considerations are not without risk and employers may need to evaluate all options to determine the best approach for their businesses. Joseph Lynett, Shareholder, Jackson Lewis LLP
