Coronavirus: Accurate Guidance for Employers Amongst all the Noise

4 minutes reading time

There is now a considerable volume of out-of-date, inaccurate and unhelpful information online about how to deal the Coronavirus situation. We have, therefore, been asked by The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) to direct attention to the most appropriate sources of information and we have set out the relevant links in the toolkit below.

As we all know, the Government’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic is now changing and adapting daily. Measures to protect the health and wellbeing of employees and to prevent the spread of the virus should be the primary focus of all employers throughout the UK.

We understand that businesses are facing unforeseen and unprecedented challenges, particularly in the hospitality and travel sector, although no-one is unaffected.  We remain available to offer both legal and practical guidance and solutions on how to manage the impact during this difficult period. If you are concerned or have any questions about the impact on your business or your workforce, please do not hesitate to contact our expert employment solicitors on 0161 941 4000.

Please note that, due to the unprecedented nature of the Coronavirus pandemic, the guidance on how to adapt to its impact evolves daily and becomes out of date very quickly. We recommend that you keep checking to ensure you are following the most up to date advice. Further, in addition to the public guidance, there are always specific circumstances that individual employers must consider, such as particular employee or employer arrangements or issues. If in doubt, please take advice.
