1. Purpose

As Victoria begins lifting COVID-19 restrictions, Edcursion Technology PTY LTD is committed to ensuring the health and safety of its employees within the workplace.

The Company is committed to:

2. Early notification of COVID-19

Employees who have symptoms of COVID-19 must not come to the office and notify their supervisor or manager as soon as possible. Symptomatic employees must seek medical advice as soon as reasonably possible, and keep the company informed of their diagnosis.

They are encouraged to contact the National Coronavirus hotline (1800 020 080) for assistance. They must also keep their supervisor or manager informed of their condition and any diagnosis that may follow. Employees who test negative following exposure may return to work following their 14-day quarantine period.

Employees who are infected with COVID-19 must immediately seek medical advice and inform their supervisor or manager. Employees may return to work after 5 days of recovery.
