Please click here for an update I drafted on minimising the risk of claims from employees during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The article covers the main types of claims that may arise from the pandemic and provides advice on how to minimise the risks of those, which includes the following:

  1. Ensure they are keeping abreast of current government advice and changes in the law
  2. Assess the business risks as a result of any changes implemented due to the pandemic
  3. Implement any necessary changes to the business as a result of those risks
  4. Regularly review their risk assessments due to the changing nature of the pandemic
  5. Keep a paper trail of risk assessments/tasks/systems that are reviewed to evidence the considerations taken
