Welcome to the second episode in a pair of short videos looking at two of the most topical issues for employers as we come out of lockdown.
Although the official Government guidance remains that office workers should continue to work from home where possible, businesses in some sectors are starting to reopen and others are planning to do so over the coming months.
In this video, Employment Partner Alex Fisher and Head Risk and Operational Regulatory Doug Bryden discuss the key issues for employers to be thinking when it comes to reopening the workplace, including:
- Health and safety considerations and risk assessments
- Impact of vaccine and possible "vaccine passports"
- COVID testing and how that might play out in the workplace
- Dealing with employees who are reluctant to return to work
