We have discovered that this answer is true (i.e., the employer must pay the medical removal protection benefits) if the employee also is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, been told they are suspected to have COVID-19 or actually are positive for COVID-19. If the employee is asymptomatic, however, the agency would NOT be required to provide medical removal benefits.  We apologize for the confusion and appreciate the insightful question.CLE is not available for this program.

The webinar also updates the audience on the sweeping changes proposed by the Biden Administration designed to make it easier for labor unions to organize the home-based care workforce and provide existing unions with more leverage than ever at the bargaining table. Faculty also provides practical, business-minded strategies to maintain a direct relationship with your workforce, reduce turnover and improve your employee engagement and satisfaction scores.  Finally, we the webinar discussed best practices for educating your workforce about union organizing and maintaining an issue free work environment.
