Coronavirus and Health & Safety Dismissals: The Emploment Rights Act
Gus Baker looks at Sections 44 and 100 of the Employment Rights Act in relation to coronavirus and health and safety dismissals.
Gus Baker has produced a guide concerning health and safety dismissals and detriments under sections 44 and 100 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 in the time of Coronavirus.
The guide provides a detailed look at how and when employees will accrue protection under the Act for taking unilateral action to protect their safety including:
- When can employees who consider themselves at risk of infection refuse to attend work?
- Can staff insist on wearing face masks?
- Can employers make employees redundant if they refuse to take part in activities they consider would be risky?
A chance to discuss the Employment Rights Act further
Gus will be discussing this topic in more detail during a series of employment webinars in late April. Full details of ’28 Barristers, 14 Days’ can be found here.
