COVID-19 Employment Issues

Rogge Dunn on WFAA Regarding COVID-19 Employment Issues

WFAA interviewed Rogge Dunn on COVID-19 employment issues amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Texas governor Greg Abbott spoke about plans to reopen stores across the state in the next few weeks. The WFAA news segment covered COVID-19 employment issues and employee rights as they pertain to life after the lockdown ends. Employment lawyer Rogge Dunn gave his insight:

“It’s been a very interesting time,” Dunn said. “The old way of doing business, given the pandemic, is just not going to work.”

Under OSHA rules, employers can’t force their employees to work if they’re under imminent danger, but it’s a tough standard to meet. “One of the things I’m a proponent of is having the employer talk to their employees,” Dunn said. “Say, ‘what do you think?'”

Even though it would be hard for employees to blame their jobs if they contracted the virus after returning to work, Dunn said that “employers would be smart to protect their employees and themselves.”

Furthermore, Dunn says the best policy for everyone involved is to have discussions over the matter. “These are very difficult decisions to be made and I think they need to be made carefully,” Dunn said.
