Fellow Republicans - what level of liability and/or responsibility should corporations have if they mandate their employees to go back to work and their employees get COVID at work?

How do you prove they caught it at work?

Viruses leave a path behind in terms of transmission order. There are virus signatures that allows you to identify that person C got the virus from person B who got it from person A.

Now the one additional link is that person A and B didn't meet outside of work. (For the sake of argument, let's assume they didn't meet outside of work, and it can be proven that transmission occurred at work)

Workplace injury lawyers will run circles around these corporations, especially if people are “forced” back.

No, the employees wil have no case.

Law is that companies need only make reasonable accommodations for safety. So you'll have a lot of lawyers making good money to determine what that is. For the most part it will be pretty difficult to hold them liable I think.

Sure but I would have low expectations of a successful claim.

Outsourcing everything to Mexico, India or China, no liability needed.

I am not sure why you politicized the question. However this maybe a new concept for accountants and consultants, but it isn’t for medical pros, police, grocery, mechanics, construction, etc. People have been working through this entire pandemic.

Accenture: what is your source of that?

So I am not a Republican, but. My train of thought on this one is that companies shpuldn't be immediately liable for people getting sick after asking them to come back to work.

That said, people shouldn't lose their unemployment benefits if they refuse to come back.

If they do get sick they should be placed on medical leave with wages paid by their employer (I think there is a federal program that helps or mandates that already).

If the company however didnt provide reasonable accomodations, then they should be held liable.

Serious question. I started developing symptoms of covid last Friday. This included fatigue which worsened last Saturday. The next couple of days it got better but I started to develop cold symptoms such as runny nose, phlegm, and nasal congestion around Tuesday. I finally tested on Wednesday and came out positive. It’s been over a week since my first symptom, but I’m not sure when to test again to see if I am positive.

Hello Fishes,

I have received an offer as SD1 at Amazon Gurgaon. I have 1 yr and 6 months of experience. I did my BTech in computer science from 2016-20. I had some active backlogs as well. Due to covid, many exams were not conducted and as for the ones that did happen, the results are taking forever to come. Right now I have one backlog and the result is yet to be announced. I am positive I will pass. Will this affect my offer from Amazon during background check as I am yet to receive degree?

I found a new job (huzzah!) and turned in my 2 weeks notice yesterday. But I started feeling crummy last night and went to the doctor for a COVID test today. Lab results already came back positive. So now I feel super guilty about basically calling in sick to my last two weeks of work...should I try and push out my start date to help out current employer? Feel like current supervisor is going to throw a hissy fit.

Had a meeting today with leadership team where I got to know about layoffs at our company. They eliminated some excess roles and targeted "low performers" he assured me and my team is unaffected and there is no reason to be worried. But looking back, I went through this during peak covid time and still regret the decision that I didn't look for opportunities at that time.
Now, not sure to start looking as I hear layoff's at many firms and an expected recession around the corner. Any thoughts??

I've got Covid, and I'm concerned about my blood oxygen that I measure using my phone (S9). Most of the time it shows dangerous levels like 88%-92%. When I first saw it, I called an ambulance and their device showed 97% so they said there's no reason to worry and left, but my phone was also showing 97% once they left. Now I keep measuring it and most of the time it's too low and once in a while gets to normal. How accurate are these phone sensors? Should I be concerned?

There should be an app like a dating app, but for parents to find nearby compatible-risk, same-age playmates for our kids to pod with during covid. If you make one, I will let you have all the profits if I can just use it to get some social interaction without virus fears!

Hey team! I've been thinking about what success would mean in terms of this platform and general inclusion in the team. These are some of my thoughts:

1. Frequency of positive engagements (positive in a productive, constructive sense)
2. Increasing numbers of people engaging in each topic as they get more comfortable using the tool and airing their opinions
3. Some measure outside the app of team engagement in day to day interactions (changes in psychological safety)
