Covid-19 coronavirus and UK Employment Law – Guiding employers through a safe return to work
13 May 2020
Following the release of UK government guidance on how organisations can safely re-open workplaces on Monday 11 May, Allen & Overy’s UK Employment team held a call to guide employers through the key points they need to understand to help safely navigate their lockdown exit strategy.
In particular, the call focused on office-based workplaces and whether there are now answers to many questions employers have been considering, such as whether temperature testing and personal protective equipment (PPE) need to become features of our workplaces. The team also reflected on other legal obligations that need to be factored into the return to work planning such as the physical design of workplaces and the challenges of public transport.
