The Government’s Draft Plan Encourages Using Electronically Signed & Exchanged Documents

5 May 2020. Posted by Draven McConville

Recently published and shared on various news channels,  “The Government’s Draft Plan To Ease Coronavirus Lockdown Measures In The Workplace,” consists of seven guidance documents and further detail can be found here.

All seven of the guidance documents have been drawn up by Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove and Business Secretary Alok Sharma, and will form the basis for the government’s proposals to get people back to work in the coming weeks.

The documents cover workers in seven different settings: hotel and restaurant staff; those who work in other people’s homes; factory workers; people working outdoors; people working in vehicles; shop workers; and office workers.

Under those who work in other people’s homes and people working in vehicles it states:

  • Using electronic payment methods and electronically signed and exchanged documents
  • Allocating the same worker to the same household each time there is a visit
  • Creating fixed teams of workers who carry out their duties in those teams
  • Using a consistent pairing system if people have to work in close proximity
  • Maximising use of electronic paperwork
