I can’t go to work because I need to look after my child, but my boss is threatening to sack me if I don’t. What should I do?21st April 2020
We would urge employers to take socially responsible decisions and listen to the concerns of their workforce – particularly when they have childcare responsibilities.
Employers and employees should come to an agreement about these arrangements..
Employees who are unable to work because they have caring responsibilities resulting from coronavirus (COVID-19) can be furloughed. For example, employees that need to look after children can be furloughed.
If you need employment advice you can approach ACAS where you can get impartial advice about in-work disputes.
