Coronavirus is affecting us all in many ways both at home and at work.
Managing employment decisions and managing staff can be difficult enough without a global pandemic, however, the Employment Team at Jacksons can help guide you through the myriad of information, guidance and regulations which businesses have to contend with.
We are on hand to advise you on all employment issues affecting your business during the pandemic including:
- Covid related absences – self-isolation, shielding, quarantine, statutory and contractual sick pay; the Coronavirus SSP Rebate scheme, time off to look after a dependant, parental leave, holiday and holiday pay. – Covid-19 & Self Isolation Factsheet
- Managing the workplace – working from home, keeping in touch with staff, Covid-secure work places, risk assessments, employee consultation, health and safety measures, returning staff to the workplace, mental health concerns, disciplinary and grievance proceedings.
- Restructuring and redundancies – fair redundancy procedures, individual and collective consultation, redundancy payments, notice pay, protected conversations and settlement agreements.
Throughout the pandemic we have been able to hold virtual meetings with clients on Zoom, Microsoft Teams and What’s App and also via good old fashioned telephone calls. We are now able to meet clients in face to face socially distanced meetings at our offices.
