Like most companies I expect, we have people working from home in large numbers now. With the school closures from the end of this week, is it ok to ask employees if they have school age children or caring responsibilities? I don't anticipate there being an issue if we're asking and not insisting?
The reason behind the request is that we'd like to be able to assess who has caring responsibilities so we can prioritise who works from home. In our business we need a skeleton staff on site.
