Coronavirus – Information, guidance and support for Highland Council employees and their managers

The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees is one of our key priorities as we manage our response to the pandemic. You will find links below to the support that you require.

In order to allow us to adapt and continue to provide essential services a number of temporary changes to HR policies and procedures have been agreed in the trade unions. You will find the details below.

We need your help to provide essential services during the period of the pandemic. You can make yourself available to be deployed to other duties - see the 'Employment' section below.

Temporary Lockdown

Highland has moved from Level 4 restrictions to a temporary lockdown until the end of January.
