General Information for Employers


I employ people, what should I be doing?

On Monday 23 March, the UK and Scottish Government called on all workers who can work from home, to do so. Non-essential businesses have been asked to close to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus.

Where working from home is impossible, employers are being asked to truly consider whether staff are required and what processes can be introduced to make them as safe as possible.

It is still important to keep up to date with new information regarding your responsibilities as an employer, including what support they will be eligible for.

Advice for employers is available here:  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19/guidance-for-employers-and-businesses-on-coronavirus-covid-19


Is there any guidance about how to make decisions regarding my employees?

NFUS affiliate members Greenburn have developed a COVID-19 employer roadmap to support employers in making human resource decisions in response to COVID-19.

Greenburn COVID-19 Employer Roadmap is available to NFUS members here
