This document aims to provide guidance around general employment law issues that Students’ Unions may be considering if members of staff are to work from home during the coronavirus outbreak.
Whilst we hope that the following information will provide some guidance, when it comes to your individual employment queries, bear in mind that your own Students’ Union has its own policies and terms and conditions. This may mean that you will need to seek professional advice from an employment solicitor for clarification of your own individual position for certain queries.
It is important to note that much of the information below reflects the legal starting point. However, as a values-led sector we recognise that many Students’ Unions may wish to go above and beyond the minimum where it is possible and feasible to do so.
As well as the information sources mentioned in the guide content below, the following information has also been put together with reference to materials provided by HR-Inform, which is part of the Croner Group.
