I need to mind my children whose school/creche is now closed. Do I have to attend work? Will I receive pay if I can’t work for this reason?

You should speak to your line manager and inform them of your circumstances. The Bank has confirmed to us that, effective immediately, they will continue to pay you in full, as normal, if you need to take some time to look after your families, if you are unable to work from home, or if you find yourself ill in the coming months. The Bank will continue to keep it under review as the situation develops globally. If you are able to work from home, please do and if not, please consult with your line manager at all times.
