The impact of Coronavirus on owner-managed businesses is developing on an almost hourly basis and as a business owner you are probably struggling to keep on top of the rollercoaster of changes that are among us.

In view of these challenges, we’ve put together a Coronavirus HR factsheet to answer some of the most common questions you and your employees will have over the coming weeks.

Some of the questions answered in the factsheet include:

  • What should I do if I have employees within vulnerable groups, such as pregnant workers?
  • What do I do if someone refuses to come into work?
  • Do I have to pay employees who have Coronavirus?
  • What do I do if my employee can’t come to work due to school closures?
  • What if I have no work available for my employees?
  • If I have to lay-off staff, do I have to pay them?
