Brief Executive Summary
The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform investigated the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on workers at twelve large private-sector companies, including AT&T, Berkshire Hathaway, Boeing, Chevron, Cisco, Citigroup, Comcast, ExxonMobil, Oracle, Salesforce, Walmart, and the Walt Disney Company. The investigation aimed to understand how the pandemic affected different worker groups and identify workplace policies for a more equitable future. The report recommends national, universal paid sick leave and family and caregiving leave programs, and suggests EEOC collect additional data to enforce federal anti-discrimination laws comprehensively.
