Excerpt from "Can You Be Liable for an Accident Caused by a Worker Who Goes Home Sick?"
When clerical employee Gina Folanari came to work one morning she noticed a funny smell in the office. "What's that odor?" she asked a co-worker. "It's some kind of pesticide," replied the co-worker. "They sprayed the building last night." At first the odor was just disagreeable. But by noon, she told her supervisor that she didn't feel well enough to continue working and wanted to go home.
