Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
What an employer wants to bring staff back to work in an office, they can do so. The government line is advisory only and not law, so not enforceable.
The employer does have a legal obligation to ensure the work place is safe to work, and any risk assessment has been carried out for health and safety grounds.
you would need to raise any concerns you have with the employer. If possible reach an agreement to see if you can work from home. If you feel unsafe to return to work, then you may have to take unpaid leave if they will allow that. They could play hardball and insist you return to work, if you fail to do so they can take disciplinary action.
