Alert Level 2 begins today!

Business and the law

This week and next will have more employees returning to the workplace. However, the rules remain the same – only reopen if you can provide a safe and healthy workplace; utilise alternative methods of working where possible and everyone needs to “play it safe”.

As an employer, we are recommending you revisit your Covid-19 safety plan to include the changes that Level 2 brings. You may need to consider the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), where previously it was not required, clients and customers attending your premises, how you will contact trace and maintain social distancing between staff.

We have prepared a summary of Alert Level 2 Frequently Asked Questions to support you.

The summary covers how to prepare your workplace, employees returning to the workplace, PPE use, privacy and more.

Check it out, along with a directory of our other employment advice, at the link.
