Returning to Work

Helping you get back to work

Working Safely

Whether you’re preparing for a return to work in the next few days, weeks or months, we help you understand how to go back safely, what to expect from your employer and how to raise concerns. 

Following government guidelines, different work environments – from offices to factories to construction sites – have to follow general and specific safety rules to keep you safe in the workplace, as well as protecting your mental health well-being and making sure they’re treating everyone equally.

Working from Home

Many of us have moved to working from home and, as businesses start to re-open, many more will be asked to do so as they’re unable to return to a physical work location.

We take a look at the pros and cons of remote working, how to use it as an opportunity to adopt more productive ways of working and create a positive home-working environment. Learn more about the importance of structuring your daily routine, having the right equipment in place and staying connected with your co-workers.

Your Rights at Work

Due to the pace of change during the Coronavirus crisis, it’s likely your terms of employment may have changed temporarily due to switching to home-working or being placed on furlough for example. Your employment rights however stay the same.

We explore your legal rights at work as an employee to help you make sure you’re being treated fairly. Learn more about changes to your employment contract and special arrangements your employer may have introduced during COVID-19.
