Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer businesses and workplaces
Working with others and support

Working with others and support

Working with trade unions, employees or other workforce representatives

This guidance is underpinned by a spirit of collaborative working between organisations and workers. Throughout this document, the terms ‘organisations’, ‘businesses’ and ‘trade union’ or ‘employee representatives’ is used in that context. Recognising that organisations have a legal responsibility to maintain workplace health and safety and must consult with the health and safety representative selected by a recognised trade union. Or, if there is not one, a representative chosen by workers. Organisations cannot decide who the workforce representative will be.

Legislation 

This guidance does not supersede any legal obligations relating to health and safety, employment or equalities and it is important that, as a business, you continue to comply with your existing obligations, including those relating to individuals with protected characteristics.

Business support

Business support information is available.
