Even before the war in Iraq ends, SARS may be the next major issue that American is forced to deal with. The workplace is not immune, and so ultimately it will raise questions for employers. In Ontario, the provincial government has already issued a news alert pointing out the interaction between WORKPLACE LAWS AND SARS. Since so many companies now have employees who travel globally on a regular basis, questions are being raised not only about policies with respect to their travel, but also as to whether employees who have traveled should immediately return to the workplace. Tech companies with Asian operations seem to be in the vanguard of those affected according to a Washington Post story. For up to date information, check out the CDC webpage related to SARS.
