MY EMPLOYEE SAYS IT IS NOT SAFE TO TRAVEL ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT…

My employee says it’s not safe for her to travel on public transport and that it is my responsibility to keep her safe. Is this true?

As an employer you have a duty to ensure that your workplace does not pose a risk to health and safety.

Your duty is, however, limited to things that are under your control and therefore does not include public transport.
