Important information

Employers have a legal responsibility to conduct a workplace risk assessment. They must put in place measures to reduce the risk of transmission for all staff and others who may be at risk.

Employers also have important duties under equalities legislation, and should make reasonable adjustments to support workers with disabilities.
