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.
