Our employment team has received a huge number of requests for help from companies who are unsure how to interpret Government guidance and how best to deal with their employees at this difficult time. 

We are producing regular factsheets for our employees which explain the latest Government guidance.  Our factsheets also sets out practical advice on issues such as furloughing (the new procedures by which employees can remain at home but employers can claim a grant to cover their wages), re-negotiation of contracts and sick pay. 

If you would like to receive these factsheets, please contact Gail Black of our employment team at  If you have any specific queries about any particular employment issue, please e-mail Gail Black or Steve Walker at

We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during this difficult time.
