Resources For Employees

Federal Legal Guidance
  • Click here for the official EEOC guidelines on the Coronavirus. Here are the general EEOC rules of employment laws in the context of a pandemic. Employers will be expected to follow EEOC guidelines.

  • Here is the CDC guidance for businesses and employers to plan and respond to COVID-19. Employers will be expected to follow this guidance. 

  • Here is a link to the official legislation and executive orders relevant to COVID-19. If your employer is not granting your rights, you can print out the bill that applies to you and bring it to your employer.

Worker's Compensation
  • Worker's compensation is available for those who are unable to do their usual job because they were exposed to and contracted Covid-19 while in the regular course of their job (i.e. healthcare workers)

  • If you are in California and need a trusted workers’ compensation attorney, contact me so I can connect you.

California
  • Here is the California Governor’s Lockdown order. You can use this as a basis if your employer is not letting you work remotely. For residents of other states, you can find the equivalent and use that. 

  • California’s Department of Industrial Relations has issued updated guidance on what employers are expected to do to help promote hygiene/safety in the workplace. 

  • California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing submitted guidance on employment rights. The DFEH is the California equivalent of the EEOC.

Financial Assistance For California Employees
  • Please visit this page to learn about financial benefits for workers impacted by COVID-19.

  • Paid family leave is available for those who stay home because they need to take care of someone who has contracted the virus (Covid-19) or who has been quarantined.

  • Unemployment benefits are available to those whose hours have been reduced or who have lost their job due to coronavirus measures (and it also applies to those who choose to stay home due to underlying health issues making them more vulnerable). If your child’s school is closed and you have to miss work to care for them, you might also qualify for Unemployment Insurance benefits. The Governor has waived the 1 week wait time and the person may not be required to be actively looking for work (as is usually required). 

New York & Illinois
  • If you are in New York, I collaborate with Alex Berke of Berke-Weiss, a NY law firm, and they compiled a list of resources.

  • If you are in Illinois, I collaborate with Julie Herrera of the Law Office of Julie Herrera. She provides information on Illinois rights here.
