The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Self-Isolation) (England) Regulations 2020 (the Regulation) came into force yesterday (28 September 2020) and they have important implications for employers and employees alike. A copy of the Regulations can be found here.
The Regulation introduces important obligations for all workers to notify their employer if they are required to self-isolate if they are due to undertake any work from a location that is not where they are self-isolating. The self-isolation location will usually be an employee’s home but wherever the location, the Regulation applies to any work undertaken outside of that location and therefore could include attending site meetings, client offices etc as well as the office.
