April 2021 Legislation eBook

On 11 March 2020, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, declared that the global COVID-19 epidemics had become so widespread that they constituted a pandemic.

On 16 March 2020, people in the UK were told to work from home wherever possible while everyone was told to “avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues”, to try to curb the spread of the coronavirus. A week later, on 23 March 2020, the UK’s first lockdown began.

More than a year on and three lockdowns later, England and the devolved administrations look to cautiously ease restrictions again while rolling out an ambitious vaccine programme.

While it is clear that COVID-19 has been not just a societal threat but also a matter of risk management, employers must again look to how businesses will safely reopen in line with the Government’s Working Safely During Coronavirus guidance to ensure that they are COVID-secure.

Moreover, many employers in office settings are reviewing working practices to determine not just when but how staff return to the office following the pandemic.

In addition, several acts are currently in process and under review as a result of wide-ranging reforms to building and fire safety following the tragic Grenfell Tower disaster in June 2017.
