Coronavirus in the Workplace

By CMS Employment Group

July 23, 2020

In this edition of On your radar we look at international responses to lifting lockdown and returning to the workplace. Pandemics press fast forward on change, and we wanted to understand the global response, even at this relatively early stage.

Our report covers a variety of return to work issues, from whether employees have a legal right to refuse to come to work because of concerns over COVID-19, to monitoring of homeworkers. 27 CMS jurisdictions from around the world took part in our survey in June 2020.

As with all COVID-19 issues the situation will no doubt evolve, but we wanted to identify and share early indications of how the return to work process was developing and how this might shape workplaces and practices.
