Employment in a Winter Wonderland

The winter season is now upon us and also presents an employer a variety of issues to manage. Such challenges include adverse weather, winter illness

Adverse weather

What issues do you need to consider?

Flu and colds

Winter colds and flu mean an increase in workers calling in sick.

Holiday entitlements

Employers may get a flurry of holiday requests around the Christmas and New Year period.

Most workers – whether part-time or full-time – are legally entitled to 5.6 weeks of paid annual leave. Additional annual leave may be agreed as part of a worker’s contract.

Wellbeing in the workplace

Winter can sometimes exacerbate conditions such as stress and depression. Spotting and doing something about troubled employees is an important business skill.
