The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) has launched a new interactive tool to help employers get their businesses back up and running during coronavirus.
The new tool guides employers to the information they need as they reopen, scale up and adapt their operations to be COVID Safe. It is designed to help businesses understand the steps they need to take and key considerations about workplace rights and obligations when returning to the workplace, scaling up their operations and adapting their business as coronavirus restrictions change.
The tool is designed to be intuitive and easy for employers to use. Employers will:
■ select the stage that their workplace is at (e.g., reopening, scaling up or adapting)
■ select the topic they want to know more about (e.g., lifting a stand down, using flexible working arrangements, reopening safely, checking paperwork, or staying up to date).
The tool then provides tailored information based on the employer’s selections and links to detailed information available on the FWO’s coronavirus website. There is also relevant referral information to other government websites on topics outside FWO’s jurisdiction, such as health and safety in the workplace and developing and implementing a COVID Safe business plan.
Use the Returning to the workplace – interactive employer tool to help find detailed information to suit your Busines needs as you start the transition back to work.
