Getting back to business - HR guidance for employers

Support provided by Business Gateway

What does this involve?

As lockdown eases, business owners may be considering plans for returning to trading and thinking about what this means for their workforce. To help navigate this challenging time, Business Gateway spoke to two of their specialist advisors, Ann Kerr, HR adviser for Business Gateway Tayside, and Alison Bell of Bell HR Consulting, to get some expert guidance.

They consider questions such as:

  • how much notice do I need to provide my employees if I need them to return to work?
  • what if I only want staff to return part-time?
  • can I rotate staff through furlough?
  • my employee has given me notice while on furlough. What should I do?
  • what are the rules in relation to annual leave at this time?

Am I eligible?

Yes – the information is for all businesses in Scotland.

What does this cost?

This is a free service.

Who is this for?

Any business based in Scotland.
