Our Employment Law and Health & Safety experts are joining forces to discuss the latest developments impacting Scottish employers and answer any questions you may have about getting back to business.
The First Minister has recently announced that, “at least in part”, coronavirus lockdown measures will be eased at the next formal review on 18 June.
So, as Scotland enters Phase 2 of its Route Map out of Lockdown, Principal Employment Law Adviser & Solicitor, Hussain Kayani, and Health & Safety Consultant, Steven McCallum, will be dissecting all of the major talking points and exploring how employers can prepare for a safe and smooth transition back to business.
The pair will be addressing the potential employment implications of a return to work, including the revamped ‘flexible furlough’ scheme, any subsequent changes in terms and conditions, and handling refusals to return to work, as well as explaining how you can ensure health and safety due diligence, covering practical control measures, risk assessment and your legal obligations.
With Scotland having taken a more cautious approach to lifting lockdown, this 30-minute session will help to minimise any delays in getting your business back on track by enabling you to anticipate potential issues, understand the latest Scottish Government guidance and develop a clear plan of action.
