Overview & Audience

As Covid19 lockdown restrictions continue to be relaxed by the Government, more businesses are opening their doors to both employees and customers. Some health professionals warn of a potential spike in infections and we are already seeing localised tightening of lockdown restrictions in certain parts of the UK. If there is a "second wave", what can we expect? How can businesses prepare, remain agile and mitigate their risks?

In our webinar, we talk through potential scenarios from an Employment and Health & Safety perspective and provide guidance to help businesses navigate the various risks and issues.

Agenda:

    • Flexibility in contracts and policies
