Will you be paid if your boss tells you to stay home because of coronavirus? Here’s what you need to know.
In the wake of the coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending companies actively encourage workers to stay home if they are showing symptoms.
But not all workers can telecommute.
Some jobs just have to be done in person. Consider the person who stocks your supermarket’s shelves. The cashier at your favorite retail store and the person who pumps your gas. The barista who makes your caramel latte and the server who brings you lunch.
