To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what steps his Department is taking to ensure that businesses uphold workers' rights during the covid-19 outbreak.
This Government is working to minimise any social and economic disruption as a result of Covid-19.
We would urge employers to take socially responsible decisions and listen to the concerns of their workforce. Employers and employees should come to a pragmatic agreement about these arrangements.
While most employers act responsibly, a small number fail to respect their workers employment rights. Labour market enforcement bodies continue to respond to complaints from workers either received directly or through the online form on gov.uk.
