The COVID pandemic jolted society in every country and changed our perceptions in profound ways, but in the UK it also jolted the foundation of a workplace model which had not much changed since the 1920’s.
As employers are now and have started to return their workforce back to the workplace this has now raised many complex areas for both the employer and employees.
ACAS last week has published guidance on whether these conditions are classed as a disability, and how employers should be dealing with employees who may fall within this category.
The Hong Kong government extends the special work arrangements, HR updates below:
Another week and further updates both on the track and trace and furlough which you may find useful in your planning and decision making in relation to return to work for your employees.
The Government has extended the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme until October 2020. Extending the scheme in its current form until July will provide workers, businesses and the economy with clarity on this vital support.
The Government has now published further information on the practical workings of the Employment Support Scheme (ESS) as a way to support Hong Kong companies during Covid-19.
The government is starting to look at easing restrictions and as such we felt it would be timely to provide you with an update so you can start to look at some of the things that are essential to ensure the health, safety and well-being of your employees. We are as always here to support you.
