Q&A

Question: Are there requirements for restaurant employees to inform their manager if they are ill?

Answer: Yes. The Wisconsin Food Code requires employees to inform the manager on duty if they are sick with certain types of illnesses or symptoms including vomiting or diarrhea. If an employee has had diarrhea or has been vomiting, they cannot return to work until 48 hours after the symptoms have ceased.
