Quarantine and Isolation: Selected Legal Issues Relating to Employment
by Nancy Lee Jones
Paperback, 15 pages, 2009, $10.00
ISBN: 1437925847

“On June 11, in response to the global spread of a new strain of influenza, the level of influenza pandemic alert was raised to indicate the start of an actual pandemic. Questions relating to employment is a significant issue raised by a pandemic since if individuals fear losing their employment, compliance with public health measures such as isolation or quarantine may suffer. Although the common law doctrine of employment-at-will (EAW) is applicable, there is an exception for public policy reasons. This report examines the EAW doctrine, application of the public policy exception in the case of a potential influenza pandemic, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and application of the non-discrimination mandates of the Americans with Disability Act.”
