It is anticipated that COVID-19 will cause disruption to all businesses and to people's day-to-day lives over the coming weeks and beyond. As employers we have a duty of care to our staff and as a business, we also have a further duty of care to our clients to ensure that we provide a safe environment as much as is possible for all concerned and ensure that we do not expose anyone to unnecessary risk.
Therefore, In the event of a national shutdown and to help reduce the risk of spreading this virus, AEC have prepared a contingency plan below. At this current time the COVID-19 has not affected AEC or any services we provide our customers.
