Number 9 in the weekly 'what to do' series aimed at senior HR practitioners looking for expert guidance and advice on surviving the Coronavirus crisis and beyond.
This week we concentrate on the new guidelines for going back to work safely and legally - what does 'actively encourage' really mean?
What are an employee's rights if their employer insists they return to work but the employee believes it's unsafe for them to do so? Deborah Scales, Head of Employment at Cartwright King looks at the law protecting employees from being dismissed or disadvantaged if returning to work or remaining at work, would put them in danger.
Darren Smith is in conversation with BFI's Director of Research, Elizabeth Smith, looking at last week's government guidelines on returning to work and where the grey areas for employers are.
