Hi, we offered a job on Christmas Eve with a start date of mid January. We have now been put into full lock down which means the team are working remotely, so no one is on site to complete an induction and we are unable to do this remotely due to the nature of the job.
The person acknowledges the difficulty and has agreed to changing their start date which is great. However we are conscious that if the lock down is extended further and as a tiny business we have to put our team on furlough or worse make redundancies, so this will impact further on the offer of employment.
Can you advise what options we may have including rescinding the offer of employment? Anyone who has been in a similar situation can you offer advice?
