Vulnerable People

Where can I find the latest Government advice on who is considered to be a vulnerable person?

I have an underlying health condition which makes my circumstances higher risk, but my manager has told me I must still come to work and I’m worried. What do I do?

Whilst we accept that this is a highly challenging time for both employers and the staff who are working extremely hard to keep businesses open in difficult circumstances, vulnerable staff should be given the protection they need and be allowed to remain at home, on full pay.

If you’re classed as vulnerable, you should contact the Advice Team, who will be able to give you specific advice based on your individual circumstances. We have created a clear plan of action for dealing with vulnerable members and we’ll be able to talk you through the steps you need to take.

I live with someone who is considered to be high risk, do I still have to come to work?

This is a matter that needs to be discussed with your line manager, but obviously much will depend on the medical status of the person with whom you live. Please contact the Advice Team for further advice on 01234 716005 (Choose Option 1).
