COVID-19 in 19 Teleconference: Returning to the office after lockdown – considerations for UK employers

June 18, 2020

As part of a regular series of bite-sized 19-minute teleconferences on the key COVID-19 employment law issues employers need to think about, on 18 June 2020 our London Employment and Labour team held a teleconference which looked at key considerations for UK employers who are planning to return their workforce to the office. 

The session covered:

  • Conducting your COVID-19 risk assessment for returning to the office
  • Implementing your COVID-19 risk assessment
  • Planning for an emergency ‘return to home’ situation
  • What to do if an employee in the office displays symptoms of COVID-19
  • Dealing with breaches of social distancing requirements at work
