Do you have rights to work from home?

Boris Johnson has announced plans to lift Plan B restrictions next week with the need for compulsory wearing of face masks and working from home advice to be scrapped in England.

Although this is the latest advice from the PM, it does not necessarily mean that your employer will require a return to the office.  It is ultimately a decision for an employer to assess the level of risk to their business and employees and put in place appropriate working arrangements.  Employers should be communicating with their employees as to what their working plans are going to be going forward.

Can your employer insist you work from the office when you have been allowed to work from home following the government’s advice?

If your contract of employment does not state that you “work from home” then yes, your employer can insist that you work from the office.
