To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, whether Job Centre Plus staff who are categorised as extremely vulnerable during the covid-19 outbreak are required to go into the workplace.
Any staff who are in the extremely vulnerable categories are not permitted to go into the office and working from home where possible. The Department has procured significantly more portable computers to expand our home working capacity. We are taking all practical steps to protect the health and safety of those colleagues working in our offices, e.g. through social distancing. We will continue to follow all government guidance on keeping our staff safe.
