The Trades Union Congress (TUC) recommended that staff, such as those in the sales recruitment industry, should be allowed to work from home if possible as the weather disrupts their daily commutes.
Brendan Barber, general secretary of the TUC, said workers should still make every effort to make it into the office, but where this is not possible employers should have 'bad weather policies' in place to deal with such a situation.
"Where possible staff should be encouraged to work from home. That way the job still gets done, most of the wintry hazards are avoided and good workplace relations are maintained," he explained.
It comes after Phil Flaxton, chief executive of Work Wise UK, said that employers should be doing all they can to engage staff in the current economic climate and boost both job satisfaction and loyalty.
