    Default Safety at Work with Coronavirus

    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.

    Keep it up and you won't have to worry about any of that. You'll be at home practicing social distancing because you won't have a job.

    Use some common sense and bring your own mask and hand sanitizer. Just make sure you keep your hand sanitizer in your pocket lest it be gone as soon as you turn your back on it.

    Meantime, if the company restrooms have toilet paper, sneak some home with you.

    I have a legit concern for my health, so please don’t Harass Me, we are exposed to passengers and when flight are 200 pax full it’s a scary situation. What an insensitive comment, we have lost many people in our work group and many have tested positive for coronavirus, I’m showing symptoms and well as others i talk to day by day... have some sympathy, And don’t insult me about toilet paper.. while I’m risking my health while your cracking jokes...what do i cafe about a job if I’m dead or in hopital paying bills. And yes i ahve am underlying health condition but have to work so safety is a necessity for me right now.

    If you are showing symptoms you need to go home, self-quarantine and seek medical help.

    The Story of the Maple Tree
    Told by Bob Red Hawk
    Transcribed and translated into Lenape by Margret Lenfest Edited by Louise St. Amour
    Many, many moons ago one of the most beautiful trees around was the maple. And its roots reached deep into the earth and its branches reached high in the heavens. But at one time, a large group of bugs crawled into the maple’s bark. And it was itching the maple. It was driving the maple tree crazy. Cause even though the maple tree had many branches and shoots and roots it could not bend down and reach all parts of itself. So it called out to all its friends in the animal kingdom. It called out and said “Can someone please give me some relieve from all this itching.” So the beaver said “Well maple tree I can probably do it, but if I start chewing on your bark it’ll probably kill you. So that would not help you that much.” And then the little mouse said “Maple tree I can dig down into your roots and get my brothers the voles and the moles and the gophers but we’ll end up starting to kill your roots and that will kill you.” So then the bear said “Well maple tree I have these nice big claws I could start clawing at your bark but that will probably shred you up.” So then they are all trying to think. Finally one of the birds was flying by and it was a flicker. And the flicker said “Well maple tree I have a cousin. How about I get all these guys to come and their beaks are sharp and they can dig in you but they won’t hurt you.” So they called all of his woodpecker friends and they flew over and started pecking at the tree and got all the bugs out of him. The tree was so happy. And everything was going along nicely and all of a sudden for a couple of years there was very little rain. It got very dry and all of the animals were getting very thirsty. The creeks and rivers had all dried up and they did not know where to go. They were all bemoaning the fact and the maple tree heard them. And the maple tree said “You know the animals helped me the time I was suffering from all those bugs biting me I have an idea.” So he called to his friend the flicker again. And said “Flicker you helped me in my time of need I want to help you. Call up your woodpecker buddies again.” So they call the woodpecker buddies. And the maple tree said “Now I want you to peck deep into my bark and then wait for a second and soon some of my sap will run out and you can slake your thirst by drinking my sap.” So the woodpeckers tried it. And when they did the sap flowed from the maple tree. And that gift saved everybody until the next rain came and they were able to drink from the creeks again. And it was from that gift from the maple to the animals that man learned how to make maple syrup and how to tap those maple trees when the sap runs. Maple syrup was precious because man could make something sweet especially in the winter time time when there were not berries to pick and no sweet things to eat. That was the time when we really appreciated the gift of the maple tree.

    Hey adjusterjack did you realize your a troll! life must be real hard in Phoenix being a miserable man who looks for peoples posts to harass them, i mean you spent your life in insurance... kind of boring if you ask me, plus you look like some white privileged daddy’s boy, and you sound judgmental and racist, it’s pretty easy to find your profile you leave a trail like a rusty old snail. I may not be an expert in law but Millennials are great on computers and tracking! I will say it’s sick when some are generally asking for help, and I’ve noted that you have dedicated your life to making people miserable and ridiculing them.

My best friend is another coworker, who also had her health jeaoirdized, by negligence of our company, she is pregnant and Is being tested for coronavirus.

    This is utterly pointless. There is no requirement for anyone here to be more than minimally courteous (yours certainly doesn't meet that bar) and the post that has your knickers in a knot was not rude, it stated facts of life with a bit of tongue in cheek humor, something that you'll need to survive in the world. You show signs of another Millennial trait, however, you're thin skinned. Your rant about AJ says far more about you than it does about him.

    I can't see how it's a requirement of law that an employer provide you with masks and hand sanitizer. Additionally, if those in the medical field cannot get them why on earth do you think your employer would be able to? As to harassing corporate management, well, that won't do you anything good either.
