Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 5

As part of your contingency planning I wanted to share some documents with you that might help in your planning.

Lay offs and short-time working

I have had many questions about how to approach this.  I attached a short guide that answers some of the most frequent questions.

Home Working

As part of the government’s social distancing advice you may want to provide home working for your employees.  I attach a simple agreement that reminds employees that any temporary arrangements are non-contractual and their continuing obligations.


The government has announce that the extension of IR35 to medium and large companies in the private sector that were due to come into force on 6th April, has now been delayed for a year.

If you have any particular queries please do not hesitate to contact David Scott.
