Despite spending weeks encouraging employers to bring employess back into COVID-secure workplaces, the Government last night announced a dramatic 180-degree turnaround.
The advice now is to work from home wherever possible, in an attempt to curb an increase in COVID cases.
There are however still many businesses for whom homeworking is not an option. For them, creating a COVID-secure workplace has never been more important. COVID-compliance is now a legal obligation and not meeting these standards in your workplace will result in fines of up to £10,000 and being forced to close your doors.
