When to use this coronavirus (COVID-19) workflow

Use this coronavirus (COVID-19) workflow to respond to an employee who is reluctant to return to the workplace following a period of working from home during the pandemic.

You should ensure that you follow government guidance relevant to your location when deciding whether to ask employees to attend the workplace.

When managing reluctant returners, you must also take employees' individual circumstances into account, and ensure that you do not discriminate against an employee in requiring them to attend the premises.
