200! That's the number of employees we have helped in our FREE COVID CLINIC as of Good Friday. A month ago we set up a pro bono (free) legal clinic to provide workers with advice about COVID-19-related workplace legal rights, how to navigate the unemployment system, and what to do when employers are not providing a safe workplace.
The amount of fear in the workplace is staggering. The question we get over and over from employees in high-risk occupations (who do not have the luxury of working from home) is: Should I risk losing my job by not showing up to work -- or risk infecting myself and loved ones at home with heightened medical conditions?
My message to employers: If you can be accommodating to your workers over the next 4-6 weeks, please do so even if you are considered an essential service. There is no reason to require in-person meetings (online meeting work great), many employees can work from home, and (for goodness sake) let people wear protective gear! Please share if you agree!
