Your reps have become aware that some employers are using a scoring system called VERA to inform decisions about staff returning to work.
Scores are attributed to individuals based on Age, Gender, ethnicity, and work-based factors.
We are concerned that this is rather a blunt instrument to deal with what could be sensitive considerations.
Any members who are concerned about a potential return to work, whether VERA has been referred to or not, are asked to get in touch with us for support.
Regardless of who your employer is, large or small organisation, they have a duty of care to ensure any identifiable risk is minimised.
