Hot weather

Is there a maximum temperature beyond which employees are not expected to work? Should employers relax their dress codes when temperatures are high? Can employees request annual leave at short notice? XpertHR has a range of resources to help employers manage employment issues that may arise during hot weather, including a Holiday policy and a Dress and appearance policy.
