The Coronavirus and what must be done

Practical steps by employers?

  • Conduct a comprehensive risk assessment.
  • Be proactive
  • Follow health advice and information: 
  • Communicate with employees: 
  • Prevent the spread of infection: 
  • Identify vulnerable workers: 
  • Display and update emergency contact information.


Travel any employees who have travelled out of South Africa at this time?

The employer should ensure 14 -21 days self-quarantine requirements, issue clear travel guidelines to its employees on international travel, particularly to countries affected by Covid-19. The employer should distinguish between employees travelling for business or personal reasons.

Place an immediate moratorium on overseas travel until such time as Covid-19 is contained or at least to affected countries.

Such employees should be required to self-isolate (compulsory quarantine) for at least. Employees should be informed that they must take all reasonable steps to avoid exposure to the illness which may mean cancelling or postponing international travel until Covid-19 is contained.

Requesting all employees to disclose international travel (to all countries) undertaken by them (or any person who they live with) since 1 February 2020. This may assist the employer with its risk assessment to determine the likelihood of contamination in the workplace.

Sick Leave and Quarantine

If any employee is placed under quarantine by the employer, should the employee be required to take sick leave?

If a medical doctor places an employee in quarantine, the employee should receive a medical certificate and in such circumstances, the employee will be on sick leave.

In the case of compulsory quarantine sick leave applies as long as a medical certificate is forthcoming. If able to work from home, the employer will not be able to deduct the period of quarantine as sick leave or annual leave as it was made compulsory by the employer. This will be a form of special paid leave that is over and above any other type of leave.

In the case of voluntary quarantine sick leave does not apply but the employer should consider special concession and consider it as special paid leave.

The employer must carefully consider the circumstances under which special paid leave will be awarded to employees. These circumstances must be made clear to employees.

A reasonable period of quarantine is 14-21 days.

Employers and employees must apply the applicable sick leave policy.

An employee must obtain a medical certificate and any time out of the office will be considered as sick leave.

Only once cleared via a valid test and by a medical practitioner should the employee be allowed to return to work.
