Re: Are You Working from Home and Getting Paid?
This obviously applies to just the last couple of weeks.

I am working from home and getting paid. Our yearly calendar has now been changed because of this, and we will be working through (if/when we go back) what would have otherwise been weeks we would not have. Because of that, we are only supposed to put in 3 hours a day, maximum 15 hours a week during this time. I'm putting in more than that though which is fine by me. I'm just grateful I'm getting paid.

I've been working from home since 2010 or so. The crazies here are what keeps me sane during the day.

It will be based on income. That sucks. Everybody should get it equally.
 Quoting: GA Girl


I just read that also.

What I read says the amount will be based upon income and family size.

----

The details are for the third coronavirus response bill that lawmakers hope to pass next week. Direct payments would go to U.S. citizens only, and would be “tiered based on income level and family size.” The two payments would be identical, with the second wave starting by May 18.

Well, I have my own business. limited contact with customers

My Wife is a NP at a Hospital

Around patients all day.

Actually just this week An Ortho PA, end up getting the virus at her Hospital.

This PA does was around surgery Patients, so who knows how many Patients got infected from this PA?

Also, the PA was around many units in the Hospital including my wifes

The funny thing is the Hospital wont verify who the PA is this is because of Hipaa Law. Which is stupid at least in my opinion because if no one knows for sure who the PA is then no one will know if they were infected and keep going to work and spreading the virus even further

The patients who caught ti will spread it also, most of the patients who they do surgeries on are older, hip, knee, back surgeries

Me nor My wife are to concerned about the Virus itself as we aren't that old shes 39 Im 48, both healthy

more concerned about having it and spreading it to others who are old or have a weak immune system

I dont think the virus is a big issue if you're healthy.

The concern is the Panic buyers, and the government who are hyping the virus so they can pass all these power laws

they are slowly putting us on lock down and we are going along with it

This will get worse as far as our rights being taken away

all this over a weak virus, imagine that

Netherlands checking in. I do IT for a company that works with elderly people and small kids mostly. to keep it vague.
We no longer receive clients but since i do IT i have extra work now that everyone else has to work from home. do meeting online etc. Im working from home now but can still go to work if i want. some people dont want to work from home because their partner is at home with the kids too so its less crowded to sit in a small office by your self to work.
were still getting paid. i have a solid contract in the sense its for indefinite time.
i could get laid off if the company has to file a motion to shrink after this covid stuff. but our minister said the government would provide financial aid to companies so this wont be needed.
i trust nothing about the future. but i am very happy im not on a temp contract and feel bad for people that get paid per work and now have no work and thus no pay.

The Tylenol didn't work. It's almost time for me to take another dose though, and I'll be taking 2 of them with this next dose so hopefully that gets rid of it.

Really? I'd say they were in a stronger position, the fact a company can employ them without the overhead of a massive office. Salaries can be increased, no commuting costs, less pollution from cars, more free time, happier workforce, more productive and we're taking home a greater income.

If anything, it will be better for everyone.

That's the thing, they may have contacted the Patients that the PA worked on or with, but all the Nurses, Nps, Doctors other PAs, cant know who this person is because of Hipaa

Now with that being said, of course the Employee's will eventually figure who the person is ny just the fact this PA will not be at work for a while

The problem with this is by the time they figure out who the Pa is with the virus countless other Employee's who had contact with this PA will have been working with others and many patients so you can see how this virus gets out of hand especially when things are being kept a secret because of the Hipaa law

They have actually came out and told all Employee's about the Pa being infected, they just added you cannot know who this person is because of Hipaa

if they would at least test the employee's that may have had contact with the PA maybe that would help keep the spread rate low.

So, i see this getting out of hand quickly at this Hospital.
