Can you work from home? If not, go to work but keep your distance and wash your hands.

take your breaks at different times and clean surfaces or take your break out in the open.

Think.

I realise it's a difficult call, but it's one your employer should be making to shut down. If they and others don't, it will only lead to a full lockdown sooner rather than later.

Are you serious!
Stay at home and protect your family and others. The implications of going into work is putting lives of your loved ones at risk.
Do the right thing!

How are your plant operators working without being in contact with others. I've worked on some of these chemical plants and it seems to me a lot of the operators work or stay close together for their 12 hours shifts

You're not a key worker so you shouldn't be at work. It's pretty clear.

It speaks volumes of the companies you are working for if they're continuing to leave you in the dark.

Health over wealth.

This isn't all that simple if his employers want him to go in. They can still sack him if he doesn't go to work, isn't ill and hasn't been told he must stay in as a vulnerable group. He will lose his wages if he is off and not ill - no sick pay and they don't have to pay him. And his employers are technically not at fault for asking him to come in.

What should someone do in that situation? I personally have no idea.

I do think.

Quite a lot when you're about, thinking what a hopeless one you are.

I'm a key worker or so I'm told. We've been wiping surfaces down regularly for some weeks.

Richb [^]. I have been trying to get that exact message across for the last couple of days on here, but I just keep getting called a thick cnut, and they should stay at home and protect their families lives by not going to work...but what if they are self employed on construction sites, or employees who get sacked for not going in...how can they pay for food for their families, but hey, some people on here know better, so I give up.

So you're going to do your bit for an employer, who clearly doesn't give a sh8t about you. All while potentially killing yourself or many others?! Please explain your logic [xx(]

The government have said that they will pay 80% of your wages? you don't have to be told not to go by your employer to claim it.

I've been told today that if I stay off work I have to use my own holidays or take the time off unpaid. The 80% off the government wont be paid out till the end of April. I have a wife and two young children to provide for , what would you do in the same situation ???

Use your holidays to start with, until the money comes through from furlough if they're saying you won't get it until April (a weeks time). Speak to your mortgage lender/council/energy provider & delay the payments for 3 months quote due to the corona virus is key.

I understand it's difficult, but would you sacrifice it for your childs life or your wifes? I hope you would say no.

Itís not simple, Iím lucky not to be in the situation where I have to make a decision but would have been in the past.

Be very careful because Iím sure you only get the 80% of wages if you are laid off by your employer and they have to pay you it, you canít just lay yourself off, if you do youíll only get benefits
