This is a violation of your duty of care to your employees. A contingency plan isn't optional—it's obligatory. The "duty of care" concept isn't restricted to exotic overseas trips. Your legal and moral obligation to ensure safe travel and emergency support for your employees extends to every aspect of their work-related travel—whether they're flying cross-country or simply commuting to the office.
Smith sums it up: "When you go above and beyond in your duty of care, you're not just protecting your team; you're solidifying your reputation as an employer that prioritises safety unequivocally. It’s a positive business decision."
