Deferring a job offer during Coronavirus
During the Coronavirus Pandemic you may recruit Employees, as such we would advise you do so by setting realistic expectations with candidates, you should only ever provide a ‘Conditional Offer of Employment’ in any circumstance. This letter provides you with the right to defer a role due to Coronavirus.
Under health and safety legislation as an Employer, you are under a general duty to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety & welfare at work of your Employees.
This includes a duty to ensure so far as reasonably practicable that your Employees and others at the workplace are at no greater risk of contracting coronavirus when attending work than outside the workplace.
