No change due to CV19
Division: Construction & Infrastructure
Due to Covid lockdown, most of us, Staff and Contractors, reverted to working from home but in the construction industry there's only so much one can do from home. Due to site works being ceased, the maximum hours payable for each week dropped from the standard 45 to 37. On Works re-starting and getting back to site the hours for all was increased to 40 per week. Recently the staff hours are back up to their contracted 45 hours per week, whilst contractors need to seek permission to work more than 40, including for weekend cover where and when required.
When lock-down finally finishes, it's expected that most contractors will be able to regularly charge up to 45 hours per week.
Current responsibilities are split across teams with 1/2 the team working from home (if possible) and the other working from site or alternative location. This is due to the end client wishing/needing to keep site attendance to a minimum.
