Dudek & Bock is considered an “essential business” under Illinois Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order, and we will continue to operate . We started an emergency text message service, and everyone should have received a text on Sunday afternoon letting you know that we would be open this week. If you did not receive the text, let your supervisor know in case we have your cell phone wrong.
No one is being forced to come to work. It is up to you to decide, based on your personal circumstances, whether to be here. DO NOT come to work if you are sick.
If you are not coming to work, please call in and let your supervisor know if your absence is for the day or for a longer period of time. You can choose to take any paid time off you have available, but if you don’t specify, we will count it as an “Unpaid” day.
The federal government’s paid sick leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act does not take effect until April 1.
