On 23 March 2020, it was announced by Government that the UK was going into ‘lockdown’, that we should all stay at home and only go outside for exercise (once per day), or to get food or medicine. Only those with ‘key worker’ status or those unable to work from home, are permitted to leave the confines of their homes and travel to work. All non-essential businesses were closed and this has had a dramatic effect on employees around the country. Whilst some have been able to transition from the office to working from home, many have been ‘furloughed’ with others losing their jobs altogether. As the full effects of the lockdown playout and the long-term economic effects become clear, when the coronavirus-crisis is over we will certainly be in a very different world to the one we were living in.
This session we will hear from Jodie Hill, Managing Partner of Thrive Law, she will host this webinar on coronavirus and its associated human resource and employment law issues. It also important to cover the aspects on our mental health too.
By the end of the session delegates will learn:
- Changes to sick pay rules
- Home working practical tips
- Health and safety/ whistleblowing issues
- Vulnerable people and discrimination
- Furlough rules
- Mental health whilst in lockdown
There will be opportunity for a Q&A.
