Covid 19 has led to the most serious economic disruption in living memory. From cashflow to supply chains, businesses across the globe have been forced to radically change their business model simply to survive. And, the longer term impact of this pandemic will be felt long after its most severe effects have passed. An important challenge in this new business environment will be how to navigate the pitfalls posed by Employment Law. This Seminar will present a focused consideration of this area from both within and outside the business. Issues to be covered include recent court decisions concerning Covid business management, remote working and productivity, increasing/reducing staff levels, staff training/re-training and managing health and safety.
