Nicola Sturgeon urges employers “not to let staff worry about the decision to work from home”

The Prime Minister urged employers to decide whether staff should work from home rather than letting employees decide during the coronavirus block.

Speaking today at a press conference, Nicola Sturgeon asked companies to evaluate whether their work was essential and contributes to the fight against coronavirus.

He also reminded employers that they are responsible for making the decision to send staff to work at home and that employees “should not be left distressed by the fact that they must continue to travel to the workplace.”

Scotland has gone en bloc

It comes when two other people in Scotland died after testing positive for Covid-19, bringing the total to 16.

The number of cases has risen to 584.

Sturgeon thanked the companies that have already closed or continued production from home, but also urged the closure of premises that do not sell essential items such as food and medicine.

He said construction sites should close unless they are involved in essential construction, that is, in building a hospital.

He also said that self-employed gardeners and window cleaners could continue to operate in the community as long as they follow guidelines on social distancing.

Sturgeon noted that if a company contributes to the well-being of the nation it would encourage workers to continue.
