Both AFT and the federal government have provided some useful overviews on workers' legal rights in relation to COVID-19. See AFT's full page on COVID-19 Resources here, which includes a section on legal rights.

If you have more detailed questions or concerns, as always work with your local union leaders, who can consult AFT-Wisconsin staff as needed.
