Covid-19 Statement | Walkers Shortbread
Walkers Shortbread Limited will cease production operations from today at 2.30pm until Monday 20th April 2020. Employees who can work remotely will be asked to continue to work as normal, those who cannot, will be asked to stay at home. All employees will receive 100% of pay until the end of that period. The position will be reviewed by Thursday 16th April.
The safety and well-being of employees is the paramount consideration of the Company. The Government is keen to maintain food supply and whilst strenuous efforts have been made to ensure that social distancing and the highest standards of hygiene are firmly in place, the Company has listened to the genuine concerns of employees and has taken this difficult decision.
Please also note the temporary closure of our OnlineShop until 20th April 2020.
