Updating the House on the Government’s new covid-19-secure workplace guidance.

 Rosie Cooper “How do the Government intend to ensure that the shielded group of people and their household members do not face an impossible choice between returning to work and breaching public health advice? Will the Secretary of State advise employers to use the job retention scheme for this group when needed?”

 Alok Sharma The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial StrategyOur guidance makes reference to employers having to consider those who are particularly vulnerable and in those sorts of categories—expectant mothers and so on—and we want them to make sure those people are being taken care of and catered for. None of the equalities legislation has changed; at the end of the day, this is guidance, but overlaid by the current regulatory regime in place across the country”.

Aye: 363 MPs No: 248 MPs-Rosie defeated.
