BOSTON (CBS) — If you’re still going to work everyday and someone at your job has been diagnosed with the coronavirus, do you have the right to know? Employment lawyer Kevin Kinne says you do.
“What we’ve been recommending to employers is to notify their workforce who may have been exposed, but not disclose the name of the person who has the virus,” Kinne said. “That way you’re protecting the privacy of the individual and you’re also keeping the workplace safe.”
But Massachusetts officials did not require shopper limits in its latest public health order. In a statement to WBZ, Stop & Shop said they’re taking all precautions necessary to keep employees safe, adding “we are in compliance with local and state regulations as it relates to the number of people in a store.”
