What should a business do?
1. Establish a process proportionate to the current risk level to minimise the spread of the coronavirus; provide for the health and safety of your employees and manage the risk to your business.
2. Review leave policy arrangements for employees that may become infected by the virus or end up being isolated as a result of a direction by a government agency or medical practitioner.
3. Develop a risk management plan to protect your business.
4. Consider options for alternative work arrangements and assess the employment related requirements under the Award, Enterprise Agreement or the National Employment Standards
