Continue working from home

Post-coronavirus lockdown: Letter notifying employees that they should continue to work from home New

EMP.HWLT.01

This letter should be used to notify employees who can work from home that they should continue temporary homeworking arrangements whilst the coronavirus lockdown is gradually lifted.

The government has released its coronavirus recovery strategy, which can be found here:

It’s a wide-ranging document, but from an employer’s point of view, the advice is that, for the foreseeable future, workers should continue to work from home rather than their normal physical workplace, wherever possible.

This letter reminds employees that they should:

· Continue to liaise with their line managers;

· Report sickness in the usual way; and

· Book annual leave in accordance with normal procedures.

The letter reassures employees that they will be kept updated with developments in the employer’s return to work strategy and advises them how much notice of the return to the workplace will be given.
