Description: An employee cannot refuse to return to work because they lack confidence in the employer’s measures or believe that leaving their home or taking public transit is unsafe. Nor can they necessarily refuse to return to work because they are older or believe they bear a special risk because of their or their family’s health circumstances and degree of auto-immune vulnerability.

  • How should managers deal with their employees’ concerns in light of the legal implications and weighing the ramifications of employees’ fears?
