Online Training Session – Managing the Return to Work After Lockdown/Furlough and HR Issues and Solutions When Working from Home – With Michael Bauer of Cumbria Employment Solicitors – 18th March 2021

Challenges Ahead

As the lockdown restrictions and furlough support subside over the coming months, the future challenges facing employers are difficult to predict precisely.

Many employers will be managing the return to work of staff who have been furloughed (some for a long time) and some employers are likely to have staff who will continue working from home.

Different HR and employment law issues/solutions arise in both these scenarios. This training will provide guidance on these two distinct situations that many employers are facing.

The “Returning to work after lockdown/furlough” session will cover:

  • handling staff concerns about returning to work;
  • managing staff who have particular health worries/issues;
  • vaccine related matters/disputes;
  • handling of staff’s new rights regarding holiday;
  • SSP related issues.

The “HR Issues/Solutions When Working from Home” session will cover:

  • various practical and legal issues that arise when staff are working from home;
  • proper handling of contractual rights;
  • addressing data protection issues;
  • maintaining health and safety and wellbeing;
  • preparing/adapting appropriate policies and procedures.

Who will Benefit from the Training?

The training is aimed at anyone who manages staff including business owners, managers, supervisors and HR teams and will give you the practical guidance and the confidence to tackle the processes described above.
