Employment Law Services
It goes without saying that every business in the UK right now is experiencing a wide range of
employment law issues. You’ll likely have staff not working (furlough, laid off etc). Some remote working. You may be facing up to the possibility of staff cuts in the near future if things don’t improve. Our employment law experts are dealing with a range of questions, including: What’s the process for bringing our staff back from furlough/layoffs? How do I extend furlough/layoff periods legally? I need to reduce staff numbers for my business to survive, what can I do? What can I do if an employee refuses to come into work for fear of getting ill? Legally, what do I have to do after someone comes back from a quarantine period/confirmed case of COVID-19 to protect my other employees?
This is just a glimpse into the most common issues that we’re seeing right now. And we’re sure that you’re probably considering at least one of these questions right now. Don’t! Get the HR advice and answers you need, and the support you deserve, from our dedicated HR experts right now!
Whether you’ve been closed or operating during the pandemic so far, you will experience a high staff absence rate because of COVID-19. It’s inevitable. Government guidelines are #to isolate on signs of the infection within a household. This means that some individuals may be face several periods of isolation, depending on their living situation. Given the nature of this virus, the health and safety of your staff should be paramount. This stance will enable your business to continue to operate properly. After all, a COVID outbreak could cause your business to grind to a sudden and potentially debilitating stop. Our absence management experts are regularly fielding questions including:
Does the Bradford Factor apply to a COVID related illness? Can we ask for proof that an individual is having to isolate/quarantine? Can we still ask for drs notes/confirmation? Should I be contacting employees that are isolating/quarantining? I think an employee is taking advantage of the pandemic to take sick days, what can I do?
Staff absence rates are going to be a big issue for every British business going forward. That’s why it’s so important that you have an
absence management system in place to accurately monitor and manage the situation to try and prevent it from getting out of hand.

The April legislation changes couldn’t have come into force at a worse time for UK businesses. This is because they coincided with the start of the lockdown! In fact, it’s not just legislation that’s changed. The government guidance on how to protect yourself and your business is also constantly changing. Because of this, it’s imperative that you ensure your
employment contracts protect your business and allow you to do whatever you need to do to ensure the continued survival of your business. The most common questions we’ve been asked include: Can I amend my contracts when employees are furloughed? Do I need to update my contracts to include social distancing policies when my staff return to work? I don’t have a reduced hours clause in my contracts, can I add one? How much notice do I have to give my staff to return them to work? Where do we stand if our staff take a second job whilst on furlough and can we enforce any restrictive clauses?
As the furlough periods continue and businesses look to save costs wherever they can, it becomes more important to ensure that your employment contracts protect your business. The pandemic could mean that things change at any moment. This means that you need to ensure that your business is protected. You need to be ready to do what’s required during these uncertain times.
With everything that’s happening, you’ll be worried about your finances. In fact, most businesses are desperately trying to cut there costs wherever they can to ensure their long term future. It doesn’t matter if your staff are on furlough, laid off or working reduced hours. You still need to ensure they get paid on time every month. So your accounts team must be able to keep up with their workload. Regardless of how often they’re working. However, with many companies taking advantage of the furloughed employee scheme, there are many question marks around how you need to be
processing your payroll. Some of the most common questions we’ve been getting include: Do we have to wait to receive the government furlough payments before paying our staff? We’ve returned to full time working, what do we need to do to cease the furlough scheme? We’re struggling financially, can we defer a portion of our staffs wages and how do we do that? We’ve furloughed our accounts team, can we still ask them to process our payroll? Can we outsource our payroll processing while our accounts team are on furlough?
There’s so much uncertainty surrounding business finances. It’s important to keep on top of your staff payroll. So why not speak to one of our payroll advisors to see how we could help support your business?
