Pennsylvania Employers: What do I need to do if an employee refuses to return to work?

This is direct communication from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor on how to report employees that have refused to return to work after being recalled.

As an employer, if you are continuing to pay your employees through the COVID-19 social distancing period, either in full or in part, an email can be sent to to notify the department of such payments. Spreadsheets can be attached to your email in order to notify the department of all employees that are continuing to receive pay during this time. If you create a spreadsheet, it should include the full names of the employees, the last four digits of their social security numbers and details regarding the wages the employee received, as well as the weeks the compensation covered . This information will be reviewed by the department, and the employer may be contacted for further information.
If you have employees who have refused to return to work after being recalled, or if you have offered work to an individual who has refused your offer, notifications can be sent to the email address above. To report a refusal of recall or offer of work, be sure to use the tab marked “Refusal of Work”.
For the spreadsheet, please reach out to your Payroll Administrator.
