Employment Law Webinar – COVID-19 HR issues

COVID-19 has raised many employment law issues both for employers and employees.  This EnginE webinar, delivered by Lisa Sourbutts, will discuss some of the employment law implications which have arisen, particularly as businesses start to return to the workplace.  Issues which will be covered in this webinar will include the following:

  1. What to do if someone calls in sick with COVID now (they HAVE to be tested so employees can’t just say they have symptoms anymore)

  2. What is the Track & Trace system and what will it mean if your employees are contacted

  3. Rules for those still shielding

  4. What to do if someone refuses to come to work – we can cover a variety of genuine and non-genuine reasons

  5. Home working considerations

  6. Contract variations – the legal process that needs to be followed for altering hours, pay and the potential consequences of getting it wrong

  7. Restructure & Redundancy – the legal process that needs to be followed
