The Law Society Wales has created a free set of ‘Back to the Office’ posters for employers, to help ensure a safe return to the workplace.
The Law Society has also produced guidance on how to consider what are the best work systems for your law firm which looks at the employment law and health and safety considerations employers will need to be aware of when deciding how to organise and manage staff.
Topics covered include:
- Can firms be liable if an employee contracts COVID-19 at work?
- Can staff demand to come into the office or can a worker refuse to come into the office if they think it is unsafe?
- Is it an employer’s responsibility to take in to account the risks involved in employees travelling to the office?
- Do employers need to make special adjustments for those the government deem to be particularly vulnerable to coronavirus?
- Do employers need to provide PPE?
- Can employers insist employees download the NHS app?
- Can employers ask workers to inform them if they have coronavirus?
- Are employers obliged to fund an employee’s home office set-up?

The posters are available in both Welsh and English and can be downloaded below:
