Many job centre workers currently do not feel safe about returning to the office due to continued concerns about the coronavirus, a union has claimed.
The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union surveyed 1,299 members and found that three in five workers feel unsafe about going back.
It says "a majority" of in-person interviews to discuss benefits claims should be done remotely over the phone.
The issue could result in industrial action, the union has warned.
