Are your employees afraid to work during the pandemic?

It's not just the essential workers who are have direct contact with coronavirus patients or decedents. They might live with family members who work in high-risk environments or who are at high risk of complications and death due to the virus. they could be in high-risk categories themselves. They might also have small children or ill relatives at home who cannot be left alone. Each employee's situation is different, although everyone is being affected in some way.

Are they getting paid more to stay home?

Where the minimum wage is $15.00 per hour and an employee typically works a 40-hour week, her gross earnings are $600.00. That's the same amount many workers have received from the federal government under the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program. Additionally, they typically receive unemployment insurance benefits from the state. If you received a Paycheck Protection Program loan, the forgivable portion might be dependent on whether you give employees every opportunity to return to work before you terminate and replace them.

There's a lot to consider while trying to keep yourself and your business healthy.

Worried about giving your email address?

I understand. That stops me from accepting "free" gifts, too.

I want your email address so I can tell you about new courses, legal updates, and events, based on your interests. But don't worry. I don't have an automated campaign set up to flood your inbox. I trust that if you find value in what I offer, you will come back when you are ready. I might occasionally share something to nudge you, in case you get stuck and forget you have tools to move you forward. That's it.

If you're still unsure, you can find a lot of other tools on my blog, Facebook business page, and YouTube channel.
