Coronavirus

Published: 

Fri 20 March, 2020

These are worrying, uncertain and unprecedented times with the impact of coronavirus affecting and changing all aspects of our lives including work.

Employers are having to change and in some cases dramatically alter the way they operate and run their business.

It has led to a large number of employees working from home, others having to take a pay cut and some being asked to take unpaid leave.

There have been reports that up to 200,000 jobs may have been lost since the outbreak of the virus.

The health, safety and well-being of everyone is our utmost priority at this worrying time.

Like many businesses we are having to adapt the way in which we work and support our clients.

Our specialist helplines for both employers and employees remain open and our dedicated staff are on hand to provide any advice and support needed.

Our representatives have made changes to the way in which they work. They are continuing to provide invaluable support at hearings via video calls and teleconference and increasingly using the same facilities to conduct meetings with clients.

The outbreak has sparked concerns around what rights someone has when it comes to sick leave, how employers should handle a situation if a staff member is affected by the virus or what happens if a business is struggling or forced to close.

Rest assured we are on hand to answer any questions, provide support and help in any way that we can

The current government advice is that we should all avoid unnecessary contact with other people.

It is not yet known exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person. However, similar viruses are spread via respiratory droplets, such as those produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

We wish you all safe and well during this difficult time

What an amazing team. I recently found myself on suspension after a call of mine was monitored by the company I work for. I felt at the time that it was unfair and did acknowledge the mistake straight away.

From a very horrible 2 years of grievances with my work manager and work place of 10 years. I unfortunately was left at a dismissal hearing with no representation or Union member to help me show and explain my side of the issues involved.
