A: The most reliable way of the workers figuring out their rights here would be to consult with an employment attorney in confidence based on their roles - essential employee, contractor, etc. You post under Personal Injury and ask about suing, but it isn't a personal injury type of setting. Many employment attorneys offer free initial consults. Good luck

A: Thanks and yes this is a very serious legal issue. The U.S. Congress, among other new bills, just amended two laws (the FMLA and FLSA) giving employees who have been diagnosed the right to time off due to COVID. So they could file a lawsuit. Please give an employment law attorney a call for more information.
