Swine flu risk to business

Half of Britain’s businesses face a high risk from swine flu, according to research from law firm DLA Piper. And the survey revealed 80 per cent of companies are reviewing their continuity planning in light of the threat. Despite heightened awareness, more than half of the companies questioned said they had not communicated their continuity plans to employees and more than three quarters said they had no plans to account for swine flu in employee policies.
