Unlocking the lockdown part 2: Exploring the key people questions




In association with:


Lockdown brought unique challenges and obstacles for both individuals and organisations right across the UK. As restrictions are slowly being lifted, it is becoming clear that coming out of lockdown is likely to be much more complicated. New practical and legal issues are beginning to arise that employers must manage. 
In our first webinar, ‘Unlocking the lockdown - part 1’, we explored the health and safety of workers as they begin to return to the office. In this second part of the series, we were joined by Miriam Lampert and Supinder Sian, Employment and Business Immigration Partners from UK and international law firm, Squire Patton Boggs.

In our webinar, we explored some of the key HR issues that businesses should be considering right now, including: 
  • The new furlough rules
  • Reintegrating furloughed members of staff
  • Considerations about consultation and redundancy
  • Managing annual leave
  • Returning employees to work guidance
  • Requests for flexible working or to work from home
