About this resource

Long COVID is affecting workers in many ways . Reps have a vital role in making sure employers properly protect workers with long COVID, and prevent new long lasting inequalities being created. 

Who is this interactive guide for?

This guide will give union reps the tools to support members, particularly those who have had long COVID and unsure about their rights or are facing issues with their employer.

How will it help me?

This guide will:

  • explain what long COVID is
  • describe how it affects working people
  • detail how you as a workplace rep can support members and review employer policies.
How do I complete it?

All you need is an internet-enabled mobile device (a phone or tablet) or a computer. Do as little or as much as you like each time you log on — your progress will always be saved. Next time you log on just pick up where you left off, this one will take you just over 20 minutes to complete.

Will I get anything for doing this?
