I am in the final few weeks of working for an employment agency before taking up a full time contract. I recently purchased some PPE in readiness for going back to the workplace (I've been working from home up to now), the agency refuse to answer my specific question about who should reimburse me for the PPE.....any ideas, here, please?

What Sector do you work in?


Couple of links of interest:






Note: Any PPE you wear due to COVID-19 going from home to your employment and from employment at end of shift to your home is your own responsibility not the employers.

your employer must provide the necessary PPE having doen a risk assessment to determine what is required assuming the actual hazard cant be avoided.

Now if I arrived to wrok on a site and I wasnt handed the necessary stuff then I an entitled to walk off site and still expect to be paid as a contractual obligation.

Now if you dont ahve a fixed place of work then things get more complcated but there is still an expectation that the necessary kit is provided or at least you are gien a shopping list and told to present them with the receipts for reimbursement if it includes things like safety footwear
