The COVID-19 crisis is changing the world of work. Parents and carers are having to balance their jobs with childcare due to school closures. Employers are adapting to new ways of working. And the situation is changing constantly, with new information flooding our inboxes and social media feeds each day.
We wanted to let you know what we are doing to help you and your family get through this challenging time. We have put together advice pages on your employment rights and on what financial support you can claim. This guidance is updated regularly and informed by the latest developments from Government.
Our free legal advice helpline remains open, but we are experiencing a high volume of calls at the moment due to this public health emergency. We encourage you to check the pages above before contacting our helpline.
We know this is a frightening and uncertain time for many of you, but please know that we will continue to fight for your rights every day. We hope you and your family stay healthy and safe during the weeks and months ahead.

Chief Executive, Working Families
