BLUF - Is knowingly exposing oneself to COVID a fireable offense?
One of my direct reports, and a top performer, is in quarantine after having been exposed to COVID. Having exhibited no symptoms and having a negative test, the individual has continued to visit their family member that has the virus.
The direct has stated repeatedly that they prefer to work from home.
The direct is effective and gets results from home. The role requires periodic travel and face to face communications. Those two requirements can not be met remotely, nor completed because of corporate policy to follow CDC guidelines for quarantine.
