Employment Revival Guide: Alert Level 4 Regulations

Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr has just published a very handy employer's guidebook.

Alert Level 4 of the lockdown is geared toward the revival of economic activities and to allow employees involved in permitted services to resume work under certain conditions. The focus on the workplace is clear from the 29 April 2020 Regulations as they specifically exclude the workplace in the definition of gathering and allow persons who were not at their place of work before the lockdown to return. This revival guide is aimed at assisting employers in the resumption of operations in accordance with the Alert Level 4.

It answers questions such as:
What are the employers’ duties?
Can an employer place a worker who presents symptoms of COVID-19 on sick leave?
What essential and permitted Services are allowed under level 4?
Who does the C19 OHS apply to?
