My inspector tells me I need an illness policy where do I find one?

The food code, in 8-304.11, requires every operator to have an employee illness policy. It is the responsibility of the operator of a retail food establishment to train their employees on the transmission of diseases through food, the reporting of symptoms and illnesses, personal hygiene and proper attire for their operation. There are many sources of information on development of these policies. A commonly used example of this type of policy is provided by the FDA at their web site.
