My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Texas
MY company is failing to provide means to protect ourselves from coronavirus, they had made a statement saying that hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes would be given, but every time I have addressed this, they continually say they are sin high demand. I have noted particularly work groups that have these items at their stations yet, I who represent the other work group do not have these items that were promised by our company. Which is understandable, but I feel I should not have to deplete my own resources at home or provide this out of my own pocket considering I face being furloughed in the future. We were told we could wear mask, but we had to provide them for ourselves, and they had to be "Neutral" in color. I have noted also that the CDC recommendations have not been followed by my company like social distancing and the prevention of using public transportation. The company also claims it is cleaning the environment that we are to work in and that has proved false because other workers as well as myself have not seen this performed and potentially exposing myself, team members and the customers at potential risk.
I asked the company about reimbursement, and these concerns, and my questions remained unanswered. After my 3rd attempt I was redirected to another person and I told the VP Head of our department, that I would like for them to answer the questions, in an email rather via phone, ( to keep a paper trail of what was said) they refused and finally the CEO and VP head of our department had another person sourced out to contact me via phone while at the doctors office, I asked for it in an email, I was declined and was told to call back on my own personal time off. I specifically wanted the safety information in writing as well as a document expressing my confers regarding my health and the safety of my well being as well as the company operating under false pretenses with an advertised a generalized statement saying it would adhere to certain cleaning standards.
