With international travel increasing, the Government has updated the guidance for businesses whose staff regularly travel overseas. The core guidance is that if you’re an employer that requires staff to travel regularly across UK borders you must:
- make sure your employees understand what coronavirus tests they have to take after international travel
- take reasonable steps to support them in taking these tests
You have a legal obligation to do this if:
- you employ more than 50 people
- any of your employees, including agency workers, have to take COVID-19 tests for work purposes
