Since the Coronavirus outbreak began affecting the way all of us do business, the team at Reality HR have been answering questions from businesses we regularly work with, new clients and guests at our popular webinars.

We thought it would be useful to share answers to the HR questions we’ve been asked most frequently, such as when sick pay applies, and what your staff can and can’t do while they are on a period of furlough. You’ll find the 10 most asked questions in our free downloadable guide.

The guide covers issues such as an employer’s responsibility for health and safety in the workplace, even when that workplace is the employee’s home;  when statutory sick pay applies, how furloughing works and how to approach holiday leave for furloughed staff.

If you have any questions that are not covered in the downloadable, or need further advice, please feel free to contact our team who will be pleased to help you.
