Euro 2016: Letting staff watch games will 'boost morale'

Firms should be flexible with staffing during the Euro 2016 football tournament, which begins on 10 June, the conciliation service Acas has said.

It has published a set of guidelines to prevent disputes arising if staff want to watch their team in the competition.

Acas said firms should have agreements in place to cover requests for time off, website use during working hours, or watching TV during the tournament.

Some games, including Wales v England, are being played in the daytime.

Football fan David Collins, who works in the public sector in Cwmbran, Torfaen, told BBC Breakfast that managers should allow staff to watch the games as it would "boost morale" in the workforce.
