As we start to all see the light at the end of the tunnel as we approach the so-called ‘New Normal’, what are the top employment issues to consider?

During this webinar, in collaboration with the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the United Kingdom, experts from our employment team addressed the following topics:

  • Return to normality, concerns about the back to work, ensuring health and safety
  • The renegotiation of contracts for remote and hybrid working and its risks
  • The furlough leave extension and what happens next
  • Can you require your staff to be vaccinated?
  • The impact of the Uber decision on your contractors and IR35


The Spanish Chamber recorded the session, which you can view below.
