Coronavirus outbreak at work: what are my rights?

The Law Centre NI employment hub has published a new frequently asked questions document to help employees understand their rights and responsibilities in the event of a Coronavirus outbreak at work.

The document will help you understand what you should do if there is a Coronavirus outbreak in your work, or if you begin to feel unwell yourself. It helps you understand what your rights are as an employee, but also what responsibilities you might have and what you should expect your employer to do.

The publication is underpinned by the legal and policy knowledge at Law Centre NI and outlines helpful health and safety legislation, Covid-19 guidance and relevant employment advice.
