In this episode of the Global Solutions series, Rebecca Emery and Susanna Bramlett address leaves of absence from employment during the COVID-19 pandemic as a result of employees who are ill, considered to be in vulnerable populations, have been exposed to the virus, have an ill family member, or facing childcare challenges as a result of schools that are opening virtually. The speakers also discuss the statutory leave laws that have been enacted since the beginning of the pandemic as well as COVID-19-related reasons that precipitate a leave of absence.
