Human resource teams in higher education institutions continue to deal with the challenges brought about by coronavirus. As enhanced restrictions and regional variations take effect, many of the issues involve not only employment law but also health and safety.

To help you at this critical time our experts answer the questions that really matter to you.

Join our Head of Higher Education Bettina Rigg and our panel of employment specialists James Tait and Kerren Daly and health and safety expert Stephanie McGarry to address your key concerns.

Do you require clarification on your obligations to home workers or need support developing a fair approach to maintaining in-person service levels? Or are you concerned to ensure that you protect the clinically vulnerable to work at home and actively managing those employees, who are not clinically vulnerable, to attend work when required?

This is a on-demand video of the webinar on our website and on our LinkedIn page.
