With the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) (CV19), we are assisting a number of clients with questions about how to manage their workplaces.
At this stage, the Australian Government is advising the community to be alert and not alarmed.
Accordingly, it is really business as usual for now with some precautions in place to reduce the likelihood of an outbreak of CV19 in your workplace.
CV19 Business continuity plans and information sheets
We have put together some template materials to help employers manage the current situation including business continuity plans, working from home policies, leave policies and information sheets for employees about their responsibilities and control measures to reduce the spread of CV19 in your workplace.
For more information about these materials or to discuss your specific workplace needs, don’t hesitate to contact our team.
For information on managing leave entitlements for employees in self-isolation, check out our blog here.
