Unsafe Working Conditions During Covid 19

U.S. Department of Labor Reminds Employers That They Cannot Retaliate Against Workers Reporting Unsafe Conditions During Coronavirus Pandemic

WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is reminding employers that it is illegal to retaliate against workers because they report unsafe and unhealthful working conditions during the coronavirus pandemic. Acts of retaliation can include terminations, demotions, denials of overtime or promotion, or reductions in pay or hours.

“Employees have the right to safe and healthy workplaces,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Loren Sweatt. “Any worker who believes that their employer is retaliating against them for reporting unsafe working conditions should contact OSHA immediately.”

Workers have the right to file a whistleblower complaint online with OSHA (or 1-800-321-OSHA) if they believe their employer has retaliated against them for exercising their rights under the whistleblower protection laws enforced by the agency.

OSHA’s Whistleblower Protection Program webpage provides valuable resources on worker rights, including fact sheets on whistleblower protections for employees in various industries and frequently asked questions.

OSHA enforces the whistleblower provisions of more than 20 whistleblower statutes protecting employees from retaliation for reporting violations of various workplace safety and health, airline, commercial motor carrier, consumer product, environmental, financial reform, food safety, motor vehicle safety, healthcare reform, nuclear, pipeline, public transportation agency, railroad, maritime, securities and tax laws. For more information on whistleblower protections, visit OSHA’s Whistleblower Protection Programs webpage.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to help ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.

Dear wellPORTAL Patient,

As you are likely aware, there is a state of emergency over coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. At wellPORTAL we are monitoring the situation very closely. The health and safety of our entire community - patients, staff and physicians alike - remain our top priorities.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever with cough and shortness of breath. If you develop fever and cold symptoms like cough or shortness of breath, please call the wellPORTAL VIP Hotline at 702-533-4353 so we can arrange for a wellPORTAL primary care physician (PCP) to assess your health condition and prepare for further evaluation as needed.

wellPORTAL primary care practices, consistent with CDC recommendations, are doing everything in their control to limit community exposure to COVID-19 while at the same time taking care of patients who need regular medical care.

• If you are healthy and scheduled to come in for an establishment of care visit or annual wellness visit, you may be asked to reschedule that appointment out further into the future.

• Some wellPORTAL primary care physicians are also offering patient visits over the phone (known as “telehealth”). Telehealth visits may be used to assess patients experiencing symptoms of acute illness to plan for further evaluation as needed. Telehealth visits may also be offered for their patients with chronic conditions and medication needs to assure that rapid safe care is available without the need to visit an office with sick patients.

All primary care practice locations in the wellPORTAL primary care network remain open and treating patients, except for P3 Medical Group – Business Park. That location is temporarily closed. However, patients who normally access care at that location can access care at another P3 Medical Group location or any other wellPORTAL primary care practice location. We will offer updates periodically as situations change during this COVID-19 emergency.

If you have questions or need assistance accessing primary care services, please call the wellPORTAL VIP Hotline at 702-533-4353. Our hours of operation are Monday – Friday 8 am – 5 pm. We are standing by to assist you.

Sincerely,

wellPORTAL Primary Care Network –
NV Energy Healthy Living Program
