Employers play an important role in ensuring the issues their employees face aren’t made worse by discriminatory decisions regarding furlough, sick pay or redundancy.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) have produced guidance for employers as the coronavirus pandemic is having a particular impact on people with certain protected characteristics, as an employer, you are still under legal obligations to ensure the decisions you make in response to coronavirus do not directly or indirectly discriminate against employees with protected characteristics.
For further information please visit the EHRC website.
