The CIPD has published ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19): returning to the workplace guide‘. The guide highlights that employers need to plan now for what is likely to be staged return to the workplace over what could be prolonged periods. Their guiding principle should be how organisations take care of their people and safeguard their health and well-being. Many people will be concerned and anxious about being in workplaces or travelling to workplaces. They will want to know that their organisation is supporting their physical and mental health and are changing their thinking about flexible and remote working. This should be at the heart of any decisions and plans that organisations make. The guide covers: (a) Managing returning to the workplace; (b) Dealing with redundancies and related issues once the furlough scheme ends; (c) Managing holidays, sickness and other absences.
