The H1N1 Virus, or swine influenza, outbreak is obviously of great concern for B.C. employers. 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 the swine flu have been ordered by their doctors or public health officials to quarantine themselves for a number of days. As the disease continues to spread in the days and weeks to come, it is likely that your workplace may come in contact with someone who has, or may have, the swine flu.
