Waterfront’s employment law specialists will be hosting a webinar looking closely at what employers should consider before bringing employees back to the office.

As the vaccination drive continues to gain momentum and employers look to transition away from mandatory remote work and bring employees back into the office for the first time in over a year, there is much to consider. During the webinar, which is being held on Thursday 22nd July, at 2pm, Waterfront’s employment lawyers will share their expertise answering some of the most common questions faced by employers.

The core questions to be analysed and discussed will include:

  •  How do we return to the office safely?
    •    Do I need to update my employment contracts to reflect homeworking?
    •    What if someone refuses to return to the office?
    •    Can I introduce a “no jab, no job” policy?
    •    What are the options if an employee is required quarantine and cannot attend work?

The webinar will be of interest to business owners, HR professionals and others with responsibility for HR, such as those in finance and operational management.

Discussing the issues will be:

Anthony Purvis – Partner and Head of Employment Law at Waterfront specialising in all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law. Anthony’s clients include both employees and employers across a wide range of business sectors.

Jamie Webster – Associate in the employment team at Waterfront assisting with all types of employment matters, both contentious and non-contentious.

Whilst a return to the pre-March 2020 way of working may be some time away, the core questions addressed during this webinar will equip you and your business for the coming months.
