In her Executive Orders, Governor Whitmer laid out regulations for employers to provide a comprehensive written COVID-19 Response & Preparedness Plan. With the Michigan Supreme Court ruling on Governor Whitmer’s Executive Orders being deemed void, a series of new orders has since been issued from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and from MIOSHA.
SBAM has developed a COVID-19 preparedness and response template, consistent with recommendations in Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19, developed by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration. Producing a remote worker policy is a new requirement from MiOSHA. Version 8 of the SBAM template, available below, contains such a sample policy. SBAM has also created the complete Small Business Owner’s Guide to Remote Work, also available for download.

All businesses or operations that are permitted to require their employees to leave the homes or residences for work must have a plan be made readily available to employees, labor unions, and customers, whether via website, internal network, or by hard copy.
