Back to the office? - Your legal rights on returning to work during COVID-19

In revised guidance first published in July, the Government stated that it is no longer instructing people to work from home if they can.  In line with that, many employers have planned and begun implementing a return to the workplace.  However, as the latest figures and the Government’s recently published Autumn and Winter Plan seem to indicate, it is clear that the risk of contracting COVID-19 will continue to be a genuine and serious one for some time.

If the “Great Resignation” is upon us, there are a few things employers and employees should bear in mind.
