“Work from home if this feels right for you – if you cannot work from home, speak to your employer about what arrangements they can make to reduce your risk”
We are concerned that this specific guidance for immunosuppressed people may have been lost in the overall guidance changes and we therefore urge employers to continue to do all they can to support requests to work from home from your employees at highest risk from Covid. To protect those who cannot work from home, reasonable adjustments and strict adherence to risk reducing measures (set out in working safely guidance) remains as important as ever.
In the letter, we have highlighted the following key points:
- Ask people who test positive for Covid to follow Government guidance and stay at home
- Enable working from home wherever possible for people at highest risk who request to do so
- Reasonable adjustments
