Returning to work during the pandemic

Coming back to work after time away during the pandemic may be difficult for some people.

If workers have been away from the business for prolonged periods they may have experienced a decline in ability or proficiency.

They may need additional time and support to get back to pre-pandemic performance.

We have published guidance on returning to work which can help you talk to your workers and provide the right support. It includes:

  • Who should go to work?
  • Returning to work after a lockdown or other closure
  • How you can help your workers if they’re worried about returning to work
  • Questions to help you talk about working at home or returning to work

More information on keeping your workplace safe as coronavirus restrictions are eased is available on our website and further guidance is available for England, Scotland and Wales.
