Dynamic workforces: Getting it right - navigating your way through statutory obligations

18 December 2020

This webinar took place on Thursday 17 December 2020 and is now available on-demand. Please register or click "already registered" if you've registered previously.

We all want to work within a dynamic workforce and of course we want to provide this opportunity to our people and teams. We want to enable them to work efficiently, to make positive changes to enhance productivity, wellbeing and morale. However the road to getting this right is often complex, fraught with conflicting information, risk, and legal implications when things go wrong. In this session we will help you to navigate this journey and meet your statutory obligations.

Our experts in HR, regulatory and insurance law will guide you through the likely challenges you will face as a result of the pandemic, whether this be your tax obligations, health and safety, liability claims or data protection. With most workforces adopting new and different ways of working, we will help you interpret the sometimes contradictory information provided from central government and we will provide you with practical advice on the steps you need to take to minimise risk, uphold your legal obligations and ensure that your workforce remains safe, healthy and happy.
