Today sees the gradual return of staff to workplaces for those who had been working from home.

Trade unions and opposition parties are calling for staff to be given the option to work remotely into the future.

Mary Connaughton, Director of CIPD, the professional body for HR and development, says employers should consult with staff before planning a return to the office.

"It is very sudden, and they didn't leave on Friday ready to go back into the workplace.

"Really they need to step back and see what the workplace lay out looks like, some may have had social distancing measures in place and they may need to amend that, some may want to keep social distancing in place for health and safety.

"They need to consult with employees about the future way forward."
