Employers to note quarantine for staff taking holidays abroadSelf-isolation applicable for countries out of travel corridor
Employers need to be vigilant as the Government is now requiring anyone travelling out of the UK for 4+ days to countries outside the Travel Corridor to quarantine themselves for 14 days in self-isolation. How does this impact on employers?
Holiday Travel Corridors?
The Government has provided exemption rules for certain holiday destinations, therefore it is imperative to refer to the ‘travel corridors’ so you can establish if it’s mandatory to undertake self-isolation, or family-isolation for that matter upon arrival.
I have listed them below for you:-
Akrotiri and Dhekelia
British Indian Ocean Territory
the Channel Islands
the Isle of Man
Please note, if you, or your family made a transit stop within countries that are out of the criteria, this does not apply.
It is important to note that it is not a legal requirement for employers to pay employees during the 14-day self-isolation quarantine, & this includes statutory sick pay – SSP.
