The long-term impacts of COVID-19 will be considerable. HR and Occupational Health experts anticipate a raft of new employee case management challenges as a result.
Direct health impacts of COVID-19 will extend beyond long-term physical health conditions and ‘long COVID’ issues for those who have had the disease. They will include mental health issues arising from a range of issues such as grief, fear, stress or isolation.
Referrals for support may include health related work adjustment or supporting individuals deemed at risk from COVID-19 in their current role or work placement. Upheaval due to furlough, home working, redeployment or job uncertainty may also lead to employee relations issues such as grievances about how an individual has been treated during or after the pandemic – or even refusals to return.
