Tricky Employment Law issues in times of Covid
The webinar will be facilitated by Pia Sanchez and Pooja Dasgupta from CM Murray LLP, this webinar will be exploring some of the ‘Tricky employment law issues in times of Covid’ that arise from remote working.
Employers have been quick to adapt in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic enabling large numbers of workers to work remotely. For some, home-working has brought a greater work-life balance, whilst others have had to adapt to working in suboptimal and stressful conditions. With remote working set to stay in the short to medium term until restrictions are lifted, it is important for employers to be aware of their obligations to provide a safe place of work and to ensure best practice is followed when addressing any issues that arise.
In this interactive webinar, we will explore some of the common challenges that arise from managing employees remotely and our top tips to tackle tricky issues. The topics we will cover will include:
– Employers’ obligations to ensure safe home-working;
– Common issues that arise from managing formal procedures (disciplinaries, grievances, performance, absence, redundancy); and
– How to support employees, spot and address tricky issues such as ill health, domestic violence, caring responsibilities, lack of space and privacy to work, bullying and harassment;
There will also be an opportunity for Q&A during the session and we would welcome any questions from participants in advance.
