Football’s Coming Home? – ACAS Guidance

Tuesday 10th July 2018

With the World Cup now well underway, ACAS has published guidance for employers to assist with issues which may arise in the workplace during the tournament.

The guidance  provides recommendations around flexible approaches to working practices, such as allowing employees to watch or listen to key matches, ensuring social media and internet fair usage polices are clear for those wanting to keep updated and the need to take a fair and consistent approach with all employees if any additional benefits are granted during the World Cup.  No mention of how to deal with penalty shoot outs however….

The full guidance can be found here.


If you require any further information on the above developments please do not hesitate to get in contact with a member of the Employment Team.
