Are employees obliged to get to work during a rail strike?

National rail strikes are causing disruption. Are employees obliged to get to work during a rail strike?


Yes, but deal with the problem reasonably. Particularly if there will be no trains running on some train lines dates. What can you do?


Advise your employees to allow extra time for their journey on strike days.


Alternatives. Encourage your employees to make alternative travel arrangements before strike days.


Allow employees to work from home or another remote working location on strike days, where it is feasible.


Adjust start and finish times for affected staff members on strike days.


Annual leave. Ask employees who cannot work to take annual leave if they want you to pay them.

Ask employees to make up unworked time on days that they couldn't work at a later date.
