Coronavirus : Guidance for businesses

Labour market

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on many parts of the labour market. To help jobseekers find work in new areas and employers tap into new labour markets, the Department for Work and Pensions have launched new Job Help and Employer Help websites.

These offer labour market information for people looking for work now, and advice for employers to help recruit them. Employers and Jobseekers are encouraged to use these sites.

For the latest information and advice, employers and business owners should visit guidance for employees, employers and businesses. Check the page regularly for updates and subscribe to receive email alerts.

ACAS has published information for employees and employers, including information on simple steps to help protect the health and safety of staff, sick pay and absence from work.
