Social distancing policies and standards within the workplace are essential to protecting employees from possibly getting sick. Employees most likely will continue to maintain a six-foot distance from others and otherwise observe social distancing in the workplace as work duties permit.

New organizational policies and standards will be implemented across most organizations protecting employees while in the workplace.

On the surface, these favors may not seem like a big deal. In reality, something like time theft can lead to severe consequences like loss of your job, financial loss and company lay-offs.
