ABSTRACT

Employer Best Practices: Policies to Support Workers During the Coronavirus Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "As the nation faces an unprecedented public health crisis, businesses are grappling with how to support their workforce, implement emergency policies and sustain their businesses amidst economic uncertainty. And millions of workers--especially frontline workers paid low wages--are facing dire extremes: either experiencing layoffs or reduced hours, or working under demanding and often unsafe conditions. Many workers lack emergency protections and benefits to meet the needs of this moment. This guide recommends specific policies and practices that corporate leaders can implement quickly to support the safety and stability of their workforce. The policies are meant to help the most impacted workers within a business-- particularly hourly workers paid low wages and those with caregiving responsibilities or health conditions that make them more vulnerable to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)."
