Government issues clarification on VCOD2
Government has issued a clarification on how the 3 February deadline (for the first dose for those currently working in CQC-regulated wider social care settings known as VCOD2) would be impacted by the Government’s intention to revoke the regulations.
We are aware that, based on the guidance already issued, those who employ or engage staff working in wider social care settings will have begun to prepare for formal meetings with staff if they remain unvaccinated. The announcement on 31 January means our clear advice is that these employers do not serve notice of termination to employees in connection with the VCOD regulations.
