At Empress Business Solutions, we prioritize the health and safety of our team members. This document outlines our specific guidelines related to COVID-19 and other contagious diseases, ensuring that all team members know how to operate safely and what to expect during such times.

Guidelines for Contagious Diseases:

  • Personal Health Monitoring: Team members are encouraged to monitor their health and stay informed about symptoms of contagious diseases like COVID-19. If you feel unwell, please prioritize your health and inform your supervisor as soon as possible.
  • Remote Work Flexibility: We trust our team members to manage their health responsibly. If you need to take time off for recovery or to prevent the spread of illness, communicate your needs so we can adjust workflows accordingly. Your honesty and transparency help us maintain continuity and support you better.
  • Support Resources: Access to healthcare information and support will be provided to ensure team members can make informed health decisions. We encourage the use of these resources to maintain your well-being.

Optional In-Person Interactions:

  • Voluntary Participation: Any in-person gatherings or activities, though rare, will be voluntary and not required as part of employment or engagement with EBS.
  • Adherence to Guidelines: All participants in optional in-person interactions must adhere to the latest CDC and local health department guidelines regarding COVID-19. This may include social distancing, mask-wearing, and vaccination requirements.
  • Health Monitoring: Team members should monitor their health and refrain from attending any in-person event if they experience COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
