Can your boss make you go back to work if you, or someone you live with, is extremely vulnerable to Covid-19?

In this situation, the government advice is for you to stay at home, so your employer should not insist that you return to work. 

Make sure your employer knows if you received a letter from the government telling you that you are in the shielding group, or if either you or someone you live with have a condition that makes you particularly vulnerable – provide evidence if you have it.

If your company is not furloughing employees, you may only be entitled to statutory sick pay whilst you are off.
