Some states require employers to develop a written COVID-19 prevention plan. Employers that fail to do so face citations and fines from government agencies and potential exposure to employee lawsuits.
For example, in California, employers must implement a COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP) that includes specific elements, such as a workplace hazard assessment, correction of COVID-19 hazards, health screenings, and other workplace safety measures. The employer’s plan must be customized to each specific workplace.
