With the disruption caused by the coronavirus continuing into April, this week Paul Seath, partner in our employment team, delivered two webinars focusing on how the ongoing turbulence has impacted on employment law.

In the first online session Paul covered everything from the rules governing sick pay that employers need to be aware of, through to the steps employers can take in the event their employees cannot work from home. You can view this webinar by registering here.

During his second webinar Paul gave an overview of the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (AKA the Furloughed Employee Scheme) and what this means for employers. As with Paul’s first webinar, if you missed the session you can still view this webinar here.

In the midst of what are fast-moving events, these webinars provides a concise summary of what organisations need to know from a legal standpoint at a time of turbulence and uncertainty.

If you’d like further guidance on any of the issues raised in either of these online seminars, please do get in touch with Paul directly.
