Corning, NY asked in Employment Law and Education Law for New York

Q: I'm an Occupational therapist working in the schools in NYS. Should the district provide PPE if we return to school?

If I provide my own do I risk liability? Or what if I become sick would that void district's liability?

A: It would be best if an employment attorney took your question, but it remains open for four weeks. Until you are able to get the input of someone with expertise in this area (or if you are not able to ultimately get a response), one measure you could consider would be to present your proposed equipment to the school and ask them if it meets their standards and requirements, or do they have recommendations for a different vendor. Good luck
