Is it compulsory for the Employer to report to the Government if employees get infected with COVID-19? If so, how?


“Does an employer have an obligation to inform the Government if an employee has a confirmed case of COVID-19?”


Answer- While none of the relevant notifications/circulars issued by the Central and State Governments so far directs mandatory disclosures from employers, if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19, out of abundant caution, perhaps the employer should choose to inform the Government.
