It’s clear from the Government's Roadmap for Re-opening and Return to Work Safely Protocol that many employees will be working from home for some time to come.

During this webinar recording, Partner Emmet Whelan and Solicitor Ciara Lennon, from the ByrneWallace Employment Law Team along with Scott Alexander, Head of Learning and Development at Legal Island, will discuss two key topics for employers as they navigate the COVID-19 crisis and remote working:

1.  Challenges arising from remote working now and in the future, including:

• Home working and health and safety,

• Data protection and confidentiality, and 

• Remote management of employees.

2.  Dealing with employment investigations remotely, including: 

• Fair procedures for remote meetings,  

• Employee right to representation, and 

• Refusal to participate.
