Hi, seeking some guidance please.
We are a very small business (12 employees) and are in the process of recruiting. We have verbally offered a job which is exceptionally well paid given the role and we are cautious that given the current coronavirus potential that we take on this person and the potential impact the virus may take on the business and obviously the employees and this new person.
Would you advise to extend the start date? Rescind the offer? What alternatives would you feel would be important at this point?
We do not want to lose the individual but at the same time the business impact of corona may be substantial that we cant afford to pay them?
Any suggestions how small businesses are dealing with this would be greatly welcomed.
Thanks in advance.
