Training Overview

Holiday travelers can destroy your workplace safety. Discover if and how you can impose travel restrictions legally.

Holiday travel is expected to break records in 2021. Your colleagues who have not seen their relatives and distant friends for two years are more than ready to jump on airplanes, frolic at parties, and hug their infected cousins. Unless you stop them, they will bring COVID-19 back to your workplace. January could be a disaster.

As your employees romp around hotbeds of infection, you may consider imposing restrictions on travel and event participation. These off-duty limits raise legal issues you need to recognize. While seeking strategies to protect your team, you could find yourself violating the law if you do not understand how to implement them correctly.
