Co-Worker's BF's Boss Shrugs Off CV19 Symptoms Of Workers Denying Time Off & Now More Show Signs Of Illness Including Her BF

Sorry for the confusing title, but OMG, had an absolutely horrible conference call meeting for work this afternoon. Because of the pandemic, we all called in from home. After our manager mentioned corporate safety protocols and financial support if staff should miss work even if showing signs of symptoms, during the round table at the tail end of the conference call, one of our female engineers began sobbing. As the title says, her BF began showing early signs of cv19 with a dry cough after coming home from work. He's a laborer, ironically, for a company packing CV19 related kits. The employer dismissed the symptoms of dry cough of workers citing paranoia and even accusations of faking them to get off from work. Not sure if anyone had fevers or even the next stages. Our manager took the conversation offline. Our team have our fingers crossed hoping for the best.

co-worker cried on call because co-worker's BF may have corona because he has to go to work?
 
So what does BF mean? I mean there were so many words yet then all of a sudden an abbreviation. I’m guess either Boyfriend or best friend. Can’t figure out why either is relevant.

I think what you've stated is your boyfriend has COVID symptoms but his boss has not allowed him time off?

Ask his boss to put this in writing and report them to health & safety after you have the written evidence.

The guidance from the government is really clear on this. Employers have no wiggle room.

No it's the co-workers boyfriend I think.

Oh damn, I need to work on my comprehension. :(

Whoever is being shafted by their employer, ask the employer to put it in writing, and then shaft them lol.

It looks like the OP is from Canada, so no idea what their employment rights are over there.
Hopefully not as terrible as the USA's!
