Employer insists on working from the office

My son's employer is insisting that he continues to work from the office during the lockdown.
He is working in Customer Services, so all his work is computer and telephone based - something he could do from home.
Is it entirely up to the employer to decide whether the work has to be carried out in the office?
Is there any official body which we could ask to verify that they are behaving correctly?
I understand that they would be liable if any employees were to contract Covid, but it does seem that they are happy to take the risk.
Our issue is that there are other people in our household who are vulnerable and for whom this practice could have serious consequences.
