Staying Safe at Work or Travelling for Work
The recent outbreak of COVID-19 (the "Coronavirus") raises challenging issues for employers, particularly those that operate in multiple locations, provide a variety of services, and employ a global workforce which travels routinely. Now is the time for employers to revisit their health and safety protocols and install procedures to minimise the risk of the outbreak affecting their staff, whilst at work or travelling for work.
The regional update below outlines employer obligations and important considerations across the Asia Pacific region in terms of dealing with the Coronavirus outbreak. Please note though that the response of Governments to the outbreak is evolving rapidly, and it is important for employers to regularly check for updates with local authorities in each jurisdiction (as the information set out below may change).
