Employment law issues as business returns

What options do we have if we need staff to work, but are not yet ready to get back to full workforce capacity? What if redundancies are necessary? Have we updated our risk assessment?

If you are asking yourself these questions, you are planning for when things start turning back to normal – whatever normal will be. From a workplace and employment perspective, there are some important issues for which employers should start preparing. The ability of many employers to respond effectively to the post-COVID-19 environment will be critically linked to good planning and communication.

We will be joined by David Ludlow, Partner and Head of the Employment Team at Moore Barlow.  David’s expertise in Employment Law will help to answer your concerns and issues around the impact of the Coronavirus on your business and employees.

This could include questions around:

  • The practicalities of getting staff back to work
  • Restructuring and redundancies
  • Using the furlough scheme until the end of October
  • the rights of employees and the employer
