You might be wondering if the new set of laws will affect your business. Fines, points, and the loss of a driver’s licence can all have an influence on a staff member’s ability to accomplish their responsibilities.
Let’s imagine a line manager is required to attend meetings at several places on a regular basis. They will be limited in their ability to travel for employment if they lose their driver’s licence. They won’t be able to go to places in areas where public transportation is lacking.
Employees in industries such as health and social care must be prepared. Workers and the individuals they care for may suffer because of a lack of information about the changes. The service will be at risk of understaffing if a care worker was to lose their driver’s licence. Vulnerable service users may be neglected because of this.
These are all good reasons why employers should do their best to ensure that their employees are aware of the changes and have a way to keep updated with any other changes which may come.
