The CIPD will be closed during the festive season – from 12:00 on Friday 24 December 2021 and will re-open 09:00 on Tuesday 4 January 2022.

Our website is full of useful information, available to you 24 hours a day. The Employment Law Helpline and the Wellbeing Helpline will both remain open throughout the period, providing free advice for CIPD members. However, our social media and customer service teams will be having a well-deserved break during this period, so if you do have a query, please do not expect a response until 4 January 2022.*

*Our normal response times won’t apply over the Christmas period.

You can still carry on the conversation with fellow people professionals via our communities over the Christmas break. If you haven’t already done so, why not download the CIPD Community app to catch up on the latest discussions.
