Colorado employees concerned about lifted stay-at-home orders

In the current climate across the world, we understand that many Colorado employees and employers are facing serious concerns about going to work. In recent weeks, individuals deemed essential workers had to continue working regardless of stay-at-home orders and undoubtedly have concerns about their health and the health risks they pose to their families. As the state works to lift stay-at-home orders and reopen various establishments previously considered nonessential, many employees will likely face the requirement of going back to work or losing their jobs entirely.

Our firm recently provided legal insight into employment matters that are affecting numerous individuals. Many employees want to stay out of work to protect themselves and their families from the risk of COVID-19, but that may not be an option. Individuals worry that staying at home will mean losing their jobs and will result in losing health insurance and other benefits provided by their employers. Even individuals with compromised immune systems and underlying health conditions may feel as if they have to go to work to maintain financial stability.

Of course, businesses could face a considerable amount of legal responsibility if they are perceived as putting their workers at risk. Unfortunately, conflicting laws make this ordeal difficult for everyone involved. Even if parties choose not to return to work due to health concerns, they may not qualify for unemployment benefits due to turning down a "suitable" job. Various details could play a role in these employment issues, including the risks of the job overall, the increased risk due to the outbreak and employer efforts to reduce risk.

We predict that a significant number of legal claims will stem from this pandemic, and our firm does not want anyone to struggle alone. We can provide information regarding Colorado state employment laws and the rights of employers and employees during this time. In some cases, taking legal steps is necessary to address a complicated predicament.
