Returning to work: employment law issues explained

Posted on: May 20th, 2020 by Ginny Hallam

Getting back to business and reopening your doors brings with it plenty of practical and people challenges. Whether that’s how to unfurlough employees, managing employees reluctant to come back to work, or how furlough impacts a redundancy process…there’s a lot to think about!

To guide you in comprehensive detail through the employment law issues, considerations and risk factors, we’ve created a brand new return to work guidance note. Our straight-talking, user-friendly guidance covers:

  1. Ending furlough – the do’s and don’ts when ‘unfurloughing’ employees
  2. Reluctant returners – 11 potential scenarios and your options for managing them
  3. Annual leave and bonus – how the new holiday carry-over laws work in practice and your options for deferring bonuses
  4. Health and safety – employment law risks, how to deal with concerns and protection for certain groups
  5. Day to day employee management – how to adjust your processes accordingly (conducting remote performance or disciplinary meetings for example) to maintain fairness and compliance
  6. Sickness absence and sick pay – the rules around SSP and when it’s payable
  7. Redundancies – the implications of the pandemic and furlough, maintaining a fair process, selecting employees and redundancy pay

Our guidance note will provide you everything you need to minimise the employment law risks, challenges and people issues in getting back to business. Click here if you’d like to purchase a copy (£250+VAT).
