Tom’s advice is really good, it is important to acknowledge people if they feel pressure or concerns about returning to work. Your commitment under the wage subsidy is to pay them a minimum of the subsidy (if not more) – if they are not able to get back to work, and you have explained the safety processes and equipment you are providing then it is probably human to understand that and work with them. You can keep communicating with them to explain that they will be safe. If after a period of time there is no change in the attitude, I would seek further advice – it might even be wise to understand your position now. HOpefully one of the special hr/talent professionals can jump in here. Andy
