These are difficult times for employers and employees alike.
Businesses are being forced to go out of business leaving loss of employment.
The UK Government have enacted The Coronavirus Act 2020 which at last provides some clarity around issues people are facing in the workplace. There is uncertainty regarding Furloughed Workers, Redundancy, Maternity Rights and Lay Off. Furthermore, when people are being forced to isolate will they be entitled to SSP, Sickpay, or to utilise paid holiday. All these factors are causing mass confusion.
