The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a shift towards remote working. Whilst this was originally envisaged as being a temporary measure to deal with the pandemic, many employers are now proposing a more permanent move towards remote working.

This event will consider the legal implications of remote working, and will cover a number of topics including: 

  • Varying contracts of employment
  • Introducing remote working policies
  • Health and safety considerations
  • GDPR implications
  • Performance management
  • Compliance with the Working Time Regulations 1998
  • The provision of equipment
  • Insurance cover.
