Original author: Stephen Simpson
When to use this model coronavirus/safe working letter
Use this model HR letter to suspend a pregnant employee who cannot return to their normal job safely and for whom no suitable alternative work is available during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Note: For employers that are making use of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, furloughing the employee on full pay is an alternative to suspending them on health and safety grounds - see Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: Letter seeking employee's agreement to be furloughed.
