Employers are facing a crisis of epic proportions in managing their workforce through a period of unprecedented turmoil. The Government guidance is at best ambiguous, at worst contradictory. On the one hand they are emphasising that people need to stay at home and respect the lockdown; on the other, they have said that anyone who can go to work, should. However, before an orderly return to the workplace can be contemplated, employers must be confident that they are meeting their duty of care to provide a safe and healthy workplace for their employees.
This City & Financial Global Virtual Roundtable Series covers the key issues employers, employment lawyers and HR professionals need to be aware of to meet their obligations to employees from a health and well-being perspective as well as a financial perspective. It will provide you with tangible, practical guidance on how to ensure best practice in employment and HR terms to minimise the risk of future claims from employees.
