Michigan labor and safety officials are issuing new rules for employers that dictate what precautions and steps they need to take to have employees return to work and stop the spread of the coronavirus.
The emergency rules from the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration come at the direction of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. They largely mirror the governor’s previous directives on COVID-19 that were invalidated because of several recent rulings by the Michigan Supreme Court.
“While most Michigan job providers are doing their part to slow the spread of COVID-19, these rules provide them with clarity regarding the necessary requirements to keep their workplaces safe and their employees healthy,” Whitmer said in a news release.
