The following Employment practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note provides an overview of the issues for an employer to consider when managing the workplace during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, reflecting the government’s plan for living with COVID-19 and the changes from 1 April 2022, including in relation to self-isolation for those who test positive or have symptoms of coronavirus and close contacts, testing, contact tracing, self-isolation support payments, statutory sick pay (SSP), obligations on workers and employers, and at-risk groups.
The Cabinet Office on 21 February 2022 published the government’s COVID-19 Response: Living with COVID-19, which set out the government plan to remove the remaining coronavirus (COVID-19) domestic legal restrictions in England from 24 February 2022.
Further changes took effect from 1 April 2022, in particular relating to the removal of free universal testing and advice on self-isolation for those with COVID-19, and the replacement of the BEIS working safely guidance with new public health guidance (see: Timeline for changes below).
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) guidance for people with COVID-19 and their contacts, first published on 24 February 2022 was withdrawn on 1 April 2022, and is superceded by guidance for people with symptoms of a respiratory infection including COVID-19.
For more information on the issues arising from the end of the legal requirement to self-isolate and changes from 1 April 2022,
