Over the last 12 months, conversation focused on the rapid response to the COVID-19 crisis. That included the immediate challenges to health and safety challenges and how to continue business through remote working.
As we begin the new year and continue to navigate the changes that 2020 gifted us, focus has now shifted to the more complex challenges and issues that organisations now face from a legal and tax perspective.
Specialist Tax Lawyer, Amber Agustin will share the major implications of 2020 and the tax risks employers need to be aware of. Cilla Robinson, leading Workplace lawyer, will share the key HR issues arising from the shift to a more flexible workforce including key legislative updates.
• Flexible working arrangements, associated risks and challenges
• Public health orders and returning from home to the (traditional) workplace
• Vaccinations and maintaining a COVID-19 free workplace
