EOI has closed its office and is asking all staff to work remotely. No one-on-one meetings. We have also put in place this paid sick leave policy:
During the current state of emergency, EOI will make up to 3 weeks of additional paid leave available to staff for use if:
· they become infected with coronavirus or are caring for a family member with COVID-19;
· they or a family member are quarantined or seeking medical care due to possible exposure to coronavirus or because they have an illness that may be COVID-19; or
· they are required to take time off due to the closure of their child’s school or place of care.
Companies should be proactive in protecting their staff from having to come to work while dealing with COVID-19 because of fear of losing a paycheck.
