Given the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus, we are providing generic guidance for members. We understand each workplace is different but these resources should help members.
Different employers will respond differently to Coronavirus. The following is some general guidance, however, as this guidance is changing daily, you should keep updated using the links to official sites on the main Coronavirus page.
Many of our finance and professional sector organisations have gone one step further to help delay the spread of the virus and to ensure the safety of their employees as well as remain aware of business continuity.
Other staff in office-based roles may have been provided with similar guidance. For example, in some cases, employers have been preparing teams for homeworking, restricting travel and cancelling all large gatherings that cannot be done via video or telephone conference.
We are asking all members to respect both the government’s advice and the employer’s requests.
If you are uncomfortable with a request from your employer we would in the first instance ask you to speak to your manager or to give your local community rep, regional organiser or the service centre a call to discuss your concerns. This is an unusual situation and must be treated with common sense and reasonable adaptations to the current working environment will be expected.
