In these strange and unusual times, I continue to be available to provide support and guidance to employers and employees.
The pandemic has obviously had a huge impact on SME’s and large global businesses.
Home working is now extremely common and many workers are self-isolating and/or too sick to work.
A whole new term has been invented to describe employees who are not working but continue to receive up to 80% of their salary. These are known as furloughed workers as defined in the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (see my article about this here)
Numerous questions are being asked by my clients:
Are employees who are off work because of the virus only entitled to statutory sick pay or is the employer required to pay them in full?
What are the employer’s duties of care to workers who have been affected by the virus?
What are the additional rights of pregnant workers and those on maternity and paternity leave?
What happens to annual leave while an employee is not working?
I am working from home but am ready and willing to answer these questions and anything else which comes up.
Feel free to contact me on my direct dial number which is 020 8370 2875 and I will be happy to assist. Alternatively, you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
