With the world cup due to kickoff within a matter of days businesses are being advised by legal firms to plan ahead in order to deal with staff levels during the competition. It is expected that employers will roll out strict plans in order to keep productivity on a decent level.
Lots of businesses have been arranging to show the matches during work tome but they are being warned that doing so could spark a number of arguments. It is feared that tennis fans following Andy Murray may also ask why they cannot watch Wimbledon in response. This will create futher issues that will continue after the world cup
Businesses need to bear in mind that being lenient and fair will be appreciated and may well reduce the amount of people who are likely to skip work. Employees also need to be willing to work together to ensure that work does not suffer overall. Lots of employers may also wish to find out where they stand legally in relation to the world cup.
There is obviously no legal entitlement for days off during the world cup, at the present it is purely up to the employer. There is obviously a need for reviews and changes to the rules by employers during the short time in which the world cup is on.
One other issue surrounding the confusion is that not everybody follows football and indeed not everybody chooses to support England either. There will be many employees from different nations following their teams, it is important that employers aim to be fair or they could find themselves subject to a discrimination claim.
With the mania surrounding the world cup growing it is important for all employers to plan ahead and cover all eventualities, the competition is very short so it is fully expected that some leniency will be given and many matches are set to take place at eight o’clock at night British time meaning lots of daytime workers may not be affected too much.
People who work as para legals, lawyers and solicitors should expect a very busy work load over this summer, that’s for sure.
