ACAS Holding Live Q&A And Webinars On Coronavirus

Want help on how to handle the impacts of coronavirus? ACAS has your back.

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (or, thankfully, ACAS for short) have been a great source of advice and help since the start of the coronavirus break out, and are continuing this in the coming weeks.

Employees Q&A

On Friday March 20th at 10:30am there will be a live Q&A session on their Twitter account which will give you the opportunity to get answers on many issues for employees such as pay, time off and much more. Whilst this isn’t a hospitality specific session it will no doubt cover a lot of issues relevant to you.

To make it even more relevant you can send in your questions in advance to them on Twitter at @acasorguk and #AskAcas

Employers Webinar

For employers there are also a series of coronavirus advisory webinars which will provide practical advice for employers to help manage the impact of coronavirus in the workplace.

They will include:

  • Steps that can help reduce the spread of the virus
  • Effective ways of communicating with employees
  • Self-isolating, time off, sickness certification and sick pay
  • Altering working hours, shift patters and working arrangements
  • Remote working and the use of technology

Once again these are not hospitality specific sessions but there will no doubt be some useful tips and pieces of advice for all employers.

The sessions are taking place on:
Tuesday 31st March 1-2pm
Thursday 2nd April 10:30 – 11:30am
Tuesday 7th April 10:30 – 11:30am
