Information for Employers responding to COVID-19 

Planning for urgent employment issues

In these uncertain times it can be hard to know what an employer can and cannot do in coping with the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Many employers are considering whether they can change employees’ working arrangements during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Free Guide for Employers

Bell Legal Group partner Margaret Miller has put together a Free Guide to help employers plan their response to the current crisis.

In the Guide you can read the answers to these questions:

  • Can an employer call for a business shutdown?
  • Can an employer “stand down” employees?
  • Are employees paid for leave while stood down?
  • Can employers ask employees to work from home?
  • Can an employer ask an employee to take paid leave?
  • Can an employer ask an employee to take long service leave?
  • Can an employer ask an employee to take unpaid leave?
