Despite healthcare warnings that Covid-19 is spiralling out of control, companies continue to abuse their tenuous links to 'essential services'. Many businesses are forcing non-essential workers, or those that can effectively work from home, to come into their place of work under the premis that a small number of their staff perform essential roles or the business falls into a sector considered essential by the government. This increases the risk to both those staff that can and cannot work from home, as well as those working in childcare, education and transport.

Appealing to their sense of social responsibility is not working. The government must introduce and enforce significant financial sanctions for businesses found to be abusing loopholes. Staff must be assessed on whether THEIR INDIVIDUAL ROLE is essential and cannot be performed from home.
