Can an employer require an employee to stay out of work because the employee or one of their family members may have been exposed to COVID-19 but public health officials or healthcare providers have not recommended or required a quarantine?
Yes, an employer can tell an employee not to come to work. We encourage employers to allow employees to use earned sick time in this situation.
