more+
less-

The H1N1 Flu or Swine Flu is a respiratory disease caused by type A influenza. While its symptoms are similar to symptoms of the seasonal flu (fever, cough, body aches, chills, fatigue, etc.), H1N1 flu is more problematic than seasonal flu because people have not developed natural antibodies to H1N1 and vaccines are not readily available. Accordingly, employers will need to be prepared to address legal issues that may arise regarding employees who become sick with, or need to care for, family members with H1N1. This alert describes many of these issues, and provides a summary of an employer’s rights and obligations regarding them.

Please see full alert for more information.
