Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
72
Job Duties:
Employees shall receive training on COVID-19 to understand the virus (e.g., signs and symptoms) and prevention measures. Employees will be educated about what the Company is doing to provide a safe work environment including providing access to vaccines. All employees will be encouraged to monitor themselves for COVID- 19 symptoms and not report for work if they are experiencing symptoms. Those taking the free and voluntary transportation may also have their temperature taken and hands sanitized as a condition of being permitted to ride the bus. There shall be no compensation for the temperature checking and hand sanitizing required as a condition of taking the free and voluntary transportation. Should an employee become ill or develop a temperature of 100.4F during the workday, the employee shall be sent home or to a medical provider as necessary and desired by the sick employee. Cost-free testing for COVID-19 may be made available. Temporary housing for COVID-19 isolation and recovery may also be made available. Common recreation areas will likely be closed during the pandemic as recommended by the health department. COVID-19 is a worldwide pandemic and the health and safety of our employees is our number one priority. We ask all employees to help us monitor our work environment and we welcome the reporting without fear of retaliation of any concern or recommendation on how to improve the safety of our workplace for everyone's wellbeing. Face coverings (covering the nose and mouth) may be required for unvaccinated workers in certain situations consistent with CDC guidance. Failure to wear a face-covering as required or refusing to answer COVID-19 questions or having one's temperature taken at work may lead to disciplinary action up to and including the termination of employment due to the serious safety concerns with containing this deadly virus. Information about the pandemic continues to evolve. All employees are encouraged to get a WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccine. Employees should expect the Company's practices to evolve with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, OSHA, state and local health authorities. If COVID-19 testing is available, employees should expect to be tested, if necessary, at the employer's expense.
