Crisis or Emergency Management Policy
Crisis or Emergency Policy
Required if you need employees to work from home in an emergency situation.
Required documentation to be used if the employer closes part or all of their usual premises, or discontinues part or all of the work of one or more employees, for reasons associated with a ‘crisis or emergency’ outside of the control of the employer.
The employer may require employees to work from home, work from another location, reduce hours of work, change duties or not work at all. All these factors must be discussed and agreed in principle then detailed in this document.
Employers will still be required to present temporary change of employment agreements in an emergency situation, but the majority of the agreement will already be understood – thus the process has reduced risk and increased efficiency.
This document is a company-wide policy and covers all roles. Temporary changes in agreement documents may differ from one role to another.
