I haven't been on here in a while but would like some advice if someone could be so kind.

A friend of mine works in Belfast but has been working from home at her parents in Fermanagh.

Today she received word that as of next week she has to return to the office and start working from there again. They are staggering workers back to the office.

She has very bad asthma and suffers with anxiety.

Can they enforce this given the UK governments stance of if you can work from home you must?

She does not feel comfortable with this plan whatsoever!

Once those companies are named and shamed on Social Media they might back down, but I thought the call from the government was work from home if you can... Strange one

If companies are working within the guidance (see my previous post) then why would they be named and shamed.  Keeping businesses closed for a long time is only going to jeopardise those businesses remaining viable.  Not sure why anyone would like that to happen.

It’s not closed and if you can do the job from home why go into an office?

I'd chat to a lawyer if I were you. I can't remember which act it is (Either the Employment Protection Consolidation Act or the Health and Safety at Work Act) that says you don't have to do anything that might cause an injury. We have similar laws here in California. I was about to ring a lawyer when my wife's employer came close to demanding that she go into the office to do work that could just as easily have been done remotely. She works in a public agency which is deemed an "essential service" but that still doesn't mean she can be forced against her will to do something that might put herself or members of her household in danger. And it's illegal to retaliate against her for refusing to do anything dangerous. I'd imagine there are similar protections in UK law.

If she can do her work from home then she should continue to work from him.
But if, for example, she worked in manufacturing then her employer could make her go into work.
According to government guidance manufacturing should still be continuing in the UK, where social distance should be maintained as much as possible, but if it can't be then other precautions should be put in place.  These instructions are here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/social-distancing-in-the-workplace-during-coronavirus-covid-19-sector-guidance#manufacturing-and-processing-businesses

It is down to the company to determine if she can work from home and do her job to same level.

So if you can prove the job is done correctly at home then you should be allowed.

Automatically you are then putting more people on the roads, interacting with shops, petrol stations buses or trains, more risk of poor social distancing measures.

Why not stick it out? Seems to be going against what the ‘experts’ are saying

Gates must be some man to convince the Chinese to pretend there's a new virus, to convince the Italians that loads of them have caught it and died from it, likewise the Spanish and French.
Trump and Bozo initially saw through his plan but he obviously bribed both of them to come on board and bring in lockdowns etc.
But luckily Gemma and John Waters have seen through it all and the Irish Courts will put a stop to the dastardly plan.

Saw a good one today. "I was falling quickly but the parachute has slowed my descent and I haven't fallen to my death yet. That must mean it's time to take it off."

Mental stuff
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-52316150

I met a Bolsonaro supporter at a party a few years back. She was as mad as a box of frogs. You thought Trump supporters were as thick as champ? I asked her what good she thought Bolsonaro was going to do.

Her: You don't know what it's like in the favelas! People are getting shot! People are getting murdered!
Me: Okay, but what's Bolsonaro going to go about it?
Her: He's going to fix it!
Me: How's he going to do that? By shooting more people?
Her: You don't know what it's like!
Me: How's he going to fix it?
Her: Brazil needs a strong leader like Bolsonaro! He's going to fix things! You don't know what it's like! You have no idea!
Me: So was Pinochet good for Chile?
Her: Huh?
Me: Was Pinochet good for Chile?
Her: No
Me: Was Galtieri good for Argentina?
Her: No
Me: When has a dictator ever been good for South America?
Her: This is different!
Me: How?
Her: This time it's going to be different! Bolsonaro is going to fix everything! We need a strong leader! You don't know what it's like in the favelas! People are getting shot every day! Children getting shot! You have no idea what it's like! Bolsonaro is going to deal with it! We need him!
Me: Yes, quite. I need to go for another drink…
