The swine influenza (“swine flu”) outbreak raises a number of issues for employers and employees. In some instances, employees who are sick or caring for sick family members must take time off work. In other instances, employees who may have been exposed to swine flu have been ordered by their doctors or public health officials to quarantine themselves for a number of days.
