It's freezing cold in our office. Do we have to stay?
There is a minimum legal temperature of 16°C for workplaces, or 13°C if your work involves considerable physical activity. (These temperatures must be achieved by the end of the first hour of work.) If it gets colder than this – for example, if the heating has broken down – you're entitled to go home until it is fixed without losing pay.
There should be thermometers around the workplace so that you can check the temperature.
