Live Webinar: Roadmap out of Lockdown

Live Webinar: The Roadmap out of Lockdown

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans to unveil the “roadmap” out of the national lockdown to the public on 22 February. Join us as we dissect, clarify and unpack what the announcement means for employers.

24 February at 15:30-16:15
(14:00 session now fully booked due to popular demand.)

As businesses continue to be bear the burden of lockdown restrictions, all eyes are on the Prime Minister and his “roadmap” out of lockdown 3.0, expected to be unveiled to the public on 22 February.

After two months in limbo, the Prime Minister has promised to “set out the beginnings of our roadmap for a way forward for the whole country as the vaccine programme intensifies, and as more and more people acquire immunity, a steady programme for beginning to unlock.”

While very few details have been confirmed, it is thought that the roadmap will be similar to what was announced last May, which gave dates for non-essential retail and hospitality businesses to reopen, as well as the return of sports and easing of restrictions on mixing.

Join us in the aftermath of this latest announcement, where our Health & Safety Director, Nick Wilson and Employment Law Director, James Tamm, will be giving their initial reaction to the PM’s plans, helping businesses to better understand exactly what this means for them, and explaining what you need to do to prepare for safe reopening and a smooth return to work when the time comes.

While you will no doubt be keen to get back to business, we know from previous experience that government announcements can create a lot of confusion and uncertainty, not only around the change in rules but your obligations as an employer and the various workforce and health and safety implications.

To help you adapt once more, James and Nick will be cutting through the jargon, politics and bluster to provide employers with the clarity and direction you need to move forward.

We hope this session will help your business to remain resilient, enable you to fulfil your responsibilities, and equip you to tackle obstacles confidently in the months ahead.

Please note that while we hope to be able to bring you an informative breakdown of the latest changes on 24 February, it is possible that the Prime Minister may delay the announcement. Should this happen, we will notify you with a change of date. Please register anyway, as even if you can’t make the new session, you will receive the recording by email afterwards.
