Whilst Government advice is constantly evolving and homeworking has become widespread as a response to the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus, the nature of an employer’s business may mean that homeworking is not always feasible. Yesterday’s Government guidance that people should not undertake non-essential travel may present further issues for employers in terms of employees’ ability and willingness to attend work but those employers whose employees need to continue to attend work need to take appropriate steps to protect the health and safety of those employees. In introducing the sorts of measures set out below, communication and consultation with staff will be key and, since Government advice is frequently being updated, care should be taken to ensure compliance with that guidance as it evolves.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
