The rule of six and the workplace
A reminder to employers that the Government’s new rule of six does not apply to the workplace.
As of Monday 14 September, people may not meet socially in a group of more than six people, indoors or outdoors, when meeting friends and family they do not live with (or are in a support bubble with).
Police will have the powers to enforce these new legal limits, with fines of £100 to £3,200.
There are however exceptions where groups can be larger than six people. These include:
Where a group includes someone covered by an exception above, for example, someone who is working, they are not counted as part of the gatherings limit. This means, for example, a tradesperson can go into a household of six without breaching the limit, if they are there for work.
