Coronavirus high risk employees advice and support

Support provided by Scottish Government

What does this involve?

The Scottish Government has published advice and information on support that's available for those who are on the highest risk list (previously known as the shielding list) including how to keep yourself safe at work to reduce the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19).

This will help employers ensure that any employees who are on the highest risk list can return to work safely, if required to do so. Where possible, employers should allow a ‘hybrid’ system of in-person and remote working for workers. 

This guidance includes information on:

  • returning to work
  • staying safe
  • health and wellbeing

What does this cost?

This is a free service.

Who is this for?

All businesses in Scotland. 

How long does this take?

The full guidance should take around 10 to 15 minutes to read, but you may only need to read the parts which are relevant to your business.
