The US Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed updated guidance for employers of all sizes to use as they develop or review and update plans to respond to 2009 H1N1 influenza season. Employers play a key role in protecting employees’ health and safety, as well as in limiting the negative impact of influenza outbreaks on the individual, the community, and the nation’s economy.
The HR Professionals at MyHRSupportCenter have developed a Pandemic Illness Guide that employers may review to help them prepare for the 2009-2010 H1N1 influenza season. Topics covered include the following:
- Planning for Fall and Winter Influenza Season
- Appropriate Response Strategies for Employers
- Preparedness and Response Recommendations
- Important Components of an Influenza Pandemic Plan
- Action Guide for Employers
