Webinar to help solve post-pandemic employment law conundrums for manufacturers

Manufacturing business leaders have the chance to get an insight into how employment law will affect post-pandemic working practices at a special webinar this month.

The employment team at leading law firm Higgs & Sons will host the free virtual event entitled ‘Getting Back To Work’ on Tuesday, March 30 at 9.30am.

Issues, such as addressing vaccination policy and the potential discrimination risks around it, workplace testing and implementing home or flexible working initiatives will all be on the agenda.

Places at the webinar can be booked at https://www.higgsandsons.co.uk/latest/2021/02/23/webinar-getting-back-to-work/

Higgs & Sons head of employment, Tim Jones

Higgs & Sons head of employment, Tim Jones said: “We are entering arguably the most uncertain and turbulent period for employment law in recent decades and it’s a hugely relevant subject for all manufacturing companies.

“There will be lots of questions for employers to answer in the coming months and it’s vital that they keep on the right side of employment law and associated risks such as discrimination, data protection and general policies and procedures at all times.

“Given the economic fallout of the pandemic, there is a real danger that some businesses will also have to contemplate a restructuring process – particularly when the Furlough scheme ends – which opens up a completely different set of legal issues.

“During the 45-minute webinar, we will be touching on all the major issues and how businesses could be affected before opening up to the floor for a questions and answers session in the final stages.

“The discussions will be relevant to all manufacturing business owners, leaders or HR representatives.”

Higgs & Sons works across a wide spectrum of law, including business services, clinical negligence, family, property and personal injury.
